Getting the following error after running the Exchange 2007 BPA, strange enough i have checked and the registry key exists and system has full permission. Also getting WMI access is not possible to my other Exchange servers in my environment...
The 'Services' string type value located in 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Exchange\Setup\Services' registry key is missing or inaccessible. The Microsoft Exchange Information Store service will not start. As a result, all services that depend on this service will not be able to start. Please visit http://support.microsoft.com/kb/285116 for more information.
Do you restore missing key accordong to KB 285116?

Hi Terence i checked this key and it is there and permissions appear ok. I came across that article when googling the other day. My exchange is running fine it's just the BPA that is reporting this and i would like to correct so i'm inline with Microsoft's BPA
