# chkconfig qpidd off
# service qpidd stop

Check Contents

To check that the "qpidd" service is disabled in system boot configuration, run the following command:

# chkconfig "qpidd" --list

Output should indicate the "qpidd" service has either not been installed, or has been disabled at all runlevels, as shown in the example below:

# chkconfig "qpidd" --list
"qpidd" 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:off 4:off 5:off 6:off

Run the following command to verify "qpidd" is disabled through current runtime configuration:
