I've looked in rc.conf, inetd.conf and cannot find anywhere to comment the NFS service.  We need NFS disabled on our Solaris 8 box (sparc).  Anyone know how?

thanks

You have to know your default run level. I you don't know, just issue
# grep initdefault /etc/inittab
is:3:initdefault:
In this case the default run level is 3

Go to /etc/rc<default run level>d (eg. /etc/rc3.d)
Do a ls and you should see a file named like S<number>nfs.server (eg. S15nfs.server). Delete this file and voilà, NFS won't be restarted the next time you boot your server.

To stop the currently running NFS Server, issue
# /etc/init.d/nfs.server stop
