In troubleshooting ndsd/DirXML, it may be necessary to temporarily prevent DirXML from auto-loading when ndsd is started. This document provides the steps to achieve that.


To prevent DirXML from autoloading when ndsd starts:

   # mv /usr/lib/nds-modules/ /usr/lib/nds-modules/

To also prevent the caching subsystem from running:

   # mv /usr/lib/nds-modules/ /usr/lib/nds-modules/

Additional Information

Beware that these changes will not only prevent them auto-starting when ndsd is started, but will also prevent the loading of IDM and starting the drivers in general.  The changes are only suggested as a temporary measure during troubleshooting, and should be reversed to return to normal operation.
