This file describes the modules to be loaded at bootup.  Note that modules that need to be loaded would have auto flags set.  Other Modules can also be present here if a default command line need to be specified.  Modules will be loaded in the order that's listed here.

Comment out then unwanted services and stop/restart the NDS Daemon

To restart ndsd type the following:

For Linux:  /etc/rc.d/init.d/ndsd restart
