This function will disable the following services: portmap - Used by NFS to map network drives cupsd - Used for printing atd - Demon for "at", similar to cron jobs. nfs statd - Used for NFS file system mounting. nis - Network information service gpm - Console mouse services If you see a [FAILED] error message, this means that the service was not running when the scanner tried to shut it down. This is not a problem, the service will still be prevented from automatically starting.
