SMB Registry : Starting the Registry Service during the scan failed

Info Nessus Plugin ID 35705


The registry service could not be enabled for the duration of the scan.


To perform a full credentialed scan, Nessus needs the ability to connect to the remote registry service (RemoteRegistry).

Nessus attempted to start the service but failed, therefore some local checks will not be performed against the remote host.
