2. Freeze all the service groups running on that system persistently:

   a. List all the service groups configured on that system and store 
      the list for later use:

      $ /opt/VRTSvad/bin/hagrp -list SystemList=~<system_name>

   b. For each service group listed in the output, enter:

      $ /opt/VRTSvad/bin/hagrp -freeze <group_name>

3. Bring down the VAD client on the system:

   $ /opt/VRTSvad/bin/hastop -client -local -force

4. Use the ps command to ensure that the VAD client daemon and all 
   agents have exited.

   command for the operating system:

   $ /opt/VRTSvad/bin/hagrp -value <group_name> Frozen

   on this system:
