After attempting to deploy Sophos endpoint software to a computer the following error is reported to the console.

0000002f. Installation involves creating a scheduled task on the computer. This requires the Remote Registry service to be running.

The Remote Registry service on the endpoint computer needs to be started for the deployment to successfully install the software from the console.

What To Do

  1. Click Start | Run Type: services.msc | Press return.
  2. Browse to the 'Remote Registry' service, right-click on it and select 'Properties'.
  3. Change the 'Startup type' to Automatic, and click 'Apply'. 
  4. Press the 'Start' button, click Apply | OK.
  5. Attempt the deployment again.  It should now install correctly.

Note: Instructions in the Sophos endpoint deployment guide explain how to enable this service for multiple computers running in a domain environment.
