Hi guys when running the security check on my server most of them fail except one:

Code:
Note: You may see [FAILED] results below; These are normal as this means the service(s) were already shutdown.

Stopping portmap: [FAILED]
Stopping atd: [FAILED]
Stopping cups: [FAILED]
Shutting down console mouse services: [FAILED]
Shutting down xfs: [  OK  ]
Shutting down NIS services: [FAILED]
Stopping NFS statd: [FAILED]
Does xfs cause a problem in it's current form?

Thanks

Go on, have a guess
If you're not running anything that needs xfs then you should indeed stop it as it opens ports accessible from the internet (unless you block them in a local firewall).

HI chirpy,

Sorry to sound total noob but what uses xfs.

Also how would I go about closing it down.

Thanks for your time

x font service you can close it in servers
you can look running servers like chkconfig --list | grep on
and if you want to stıop them
service blabla stop and
chkconfig blabla off
