Applies To: System Center 2016 Technical Preview - Service Manager

Caution

Incorrectly editing the registry can severely damage your system. Before making changes to the registry, you should back up any valued data on the computer.

Service Manager stores many settings in the registry. You seldom have to edit the registry yourself, because most of those settings are derived from entries that you make in day-to-day use. However, some changes to settings might occasionally be required. Service Manager stores most registry values in the following locations:

  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\System Center\2016\Service Manager\Console

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\System Center\2016
