As many pointed out, the solution is simple:

To disable dtlogin without reboting:

/usr/dt/bin/dtconfig -kill (kills dtlogin till next reboot)

Two solutions to disable dtlogin on the next reboot:

1) /usr/dt/bin/dtconfig -d (disables start after reboot as well)
2) rename /etc/rc2.d/S99dtlogin to something like /etc/rc2.d/s99dtlogin
   so that it will not run on next reboot.
