On prior versions, we could just stop vasgpd and stop it from restarting on reboot.
Increase the VGP PolicyRefreshRate setting to a large number in the /etc/opt/quest/vgp/vgp.conf so that it would not refresh for a long time.
Move off the following file to disable group policy from applying:
*note that this is a hidden file:
mv .vgptool .vgptool_save
Group policy will no longer apply until the file is moved backed or renamed .vgptool
A request has been submitted for a better method for stopping VGP refreshes.
One other workaround for this is to move the vgptool daemon aside.
