I am trying to disable to the RPC bind service: svc:/network/rpc/bind:default or make it only to local client. But is there way to check the system to find out which service is using it?

    Also is there a way to find out which application is using a particular service? I know that I could use "svcs -d" and "svcs -D" to check inter-dependancy between SMF services. But what about application?

    Try 'svcs -p' :
     The -p                      flag lists processes associated with each service instance.
                                 The process ID, start time, and command  name  (PID,  STIME,  and   CMD
                                 fields from ps(1)) are displayed for each process.

    Knowing the command name you should be able to determine the application.
