Description:

NSM integration is installed by default in R 12.1 but we are not using NSM and don't need this integration. I also see the below error messages in the log:

09/11 07:45:31.01 <servername>   pdm_d_mgr           36496 ERROR        daemo

Solution:

You can follow the below procedure to remove NSM integration from Service Desk 12.1:

Warning: Take a back up of the pdm_startup file before you try this.

[ procset MAIN_PROCSET]
  pdm_info 
  sw_ver_ctl 
  bpnotify_nxd 
  PDMBASE 
  PDMBOP 
  FILTERING 

Type a semicolon (;) to comment out FILTERING (ONLY).

Moving backwards towards the top of the file, you should see the following text:

[ procset FILTERING ] 
  tngfilter 
  tngwriter 
  ehc 
  ; UNICNV_REPLACE 
 ; tngcnv:NT_ONLY

Type a semicolon (;) before tngfilter, tngwriter and ehc in the above section and save the changes and restart the services.
You should now not see any of the NSM integration processes starting when you type in pdm_status.
