Stop WebSphere from auto starting in Linux Centos5

If during the WebSphere installation you opted to have WebSphere auto start, then you can use this command to turn off auto start.

chkconfig node01_was.init off

You see if you look around you will notice that in /etc/rc5.d there is a soft link (symbolic link) to /etc/init.d/node01_was.init as seen below

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 25 Apr 13 09:00 K02node01_was.init -> ../init.d/node01_was.init

If you view this file, you will notice a line like

SERVICENAME="node01_was.init"

this is how you can tell the service name.

To manully stop WebSphere you can use

service node01_was.init stop

Example:

[root@s15337574 init.d]# service node01_was.init stop
Stopping WebSphere Application Server - server1 ...
