System Administration Guide: Naming and Directory Services (NIS+)

Stopping the rpc.nisd Daemon

When you disable the NIS+ service, the rpc.nisd daemon stops. Use the svcs command to determine the FMRI and the state of the service. Then use the svcadm disable command to stop the service, whether the service is running in normal or NIS-compatibility mode.
