Error: Access to registry key is denied


This issue could occur when the central console does not have sufficient rights to access the remote agent machine in a different domain.



To resolve the issue, perform the following steps:

Warning: Incorrect use of the Windows registry editor may prevent the operating system from functioning properly. Great care should be taken when making changes to a Windows registry. Registry modifications should only be carried-out by persons experienced in the use of the registry editor application. It is recommended that a complete backup of the registry and workstation be made prior to making any registry changes.

1. Open the Registry Editor (Click Start > Run > type regedit) on the remote console/UI server.
2. Click on File > Connect Network Registry.
3. Browse to the remote agent machine.
4. Check whether the central console machine can access the remote agent's registry and make the necessary modifications to the permissions if not.
