All the boot server related services are controlled by 'SDMPCSERVER' sub-service/plugin under the CAF Service.
To disable this service completely you need to execute the following commands on the respective server:

  • caf stop sdmpcserver -> Stops the SDMPCSERVER Services.

  • caf disable sdmpcserver -> Disables the SDMPCSERVER Services.

  • caf noauto sdmpceserver -> Sets the SDMPCSERVER services to manual so that the service would not start automatically the next time when the server is rebooted or restarted.
