How to disable the universal forwarder default management port 8089 with a deployment server?

I'm trying to disable the default management point on the universal forwarders (8089) with the deployment server and I'm having a hard time getting the deployment server to deploy correctly. I have created the app that should disable it and it successfully pushes, but when I do a netstat, it's still listening. Anyone have any advice or see anything I'm doing incorrectly? If I edit the local\server.conf on the test server, it successfully disables the management port.

Thanks!

On the deployment server

deployment-apps\disable_mgmt_app\etc\system\local\server.conf

[httpServer]
disableDefaultPort = true

Actually solved this one myself, when adding the app you don't need to specify directories you just need to place it in deployment-apps/disable_mgmt/local/server.conf and it will work.
