I've just noticed now that we've got ZPM enabled it seems to get a bit overexcited and start trying to patch machines while they're still being configured during our imaging process. For example our scripts go:

Image > drivers Novell Client > ZCM Agent > pre-load Bundles > AV = finish

Seems like ZPM kicks in as soon as the Agent registers into the zone. In theory it shouldn't do anything as I have the DAU set to 30 minutes after refresh (with ZCM auto refresh disabled) but yet I still see a Novell patch manager popup slide in from the corner (then disappears as quickly as it arrived)

Is there a command that can be used to temporarily disable all ZPM activity on a client? Might also be important for us for any online exams that could fall in the overall patching window.
