It was found that this issue was caused by a third party product, JAMF’s Casper Suite. The issue was caused by the JAMF Casper Suite’s JSS Server being allowed to apply User Level Managed Preferences. Since the VGP component of QAS has the same functionality the MCX settings function of Casper Suite should be disabled to prevent a conflict.
To disable this feature log in to the JSS as an Admin. Go to the following URL https://your_jss_url.com/computerCheckIn.html. On the Login/Logout Hooks tab dis-select the “Enable user-level Managed Preferences” then save.
