if you dont want to use DFM at all, it is advisable to uninstall DFM components from LMS server. If that is not feasible, you can change the device manageability to auto and dont manage any devices in it which will have DFM virtually non-functional.
It is not suggested to play with the services, as they wont impact the server if none of the devices are managed.
