svcs -a shows you what is running.

I usually disable cde-* , wbem, webconsole, volfs , autofs (plus edit
/etc/auto_*), stfsloader, etc.

You can easily script most or all of this, it is just

for a in `cat disable-services.txt`
svcadm disable $a

I think I usually do "netservices limited" then go from there.

Sun has changed some of the names and added/deleted services from
release to release, so YMMV.
