On Ubuntu the VASD process fails to start on boot up with the following log entry:
kernel: [ ] init: vasd main process (755) terminated with status 1
ERROR: according to /var/opt/quest/vas/vasd/.vasd.pid vasd appears to be running already
This was caused by an error in the upstart script.
* package: Changed the ubuntu startup script so vasd does not rely on network.
This was fixed in version 188.8.131.5229
