Please follow these steps on primary server if the environment is conventional, or background and standby servers if the environment is advanced availability:
1. Log in into web interface as administrator and then go to Administration->Options Manager and set the "heat_weather" option in options manager to a value of "Off"
***Step 2 is optional - It will prevent the heat and weather daemons from starting up so they wont use any CPU or memory on the server(s)***
2. Modify pdm_startup files to remove reference to PDM_HW_NXD/pdm_hw_nxd
Modify pdm_startup, pdm_startup.i and pdm_startup.tpl under the pdmconf directory to remove any reference to PDM_HW_NXD and pdm_hw_nxd. Save the changes.
3. Recycle Service Desk Manager
***Step 4 is optional and only needed if you performed Step 2***
4. Verify that pdm_hw_nxd is gone
From command prompt, run "pdm_status" and make sure entry like this does not show up in the list:
Heat Weather (pdm_hw_nxd) Running
