Server 2012 R2



I have been having a lot of troubles monitoring anything from the remote registry on new server 2012 R2 server. I have followed the KB article mentions on this site and removed the triggered start.

sc triggerinfo "remoteregistry" delete

And now the service will start when the server restarts, but it seems to go idle and stop for no reason, any thoughts or experiences with 2012 R2 servers and remote registry. Confirmed the service is always stopped when I have my issue, so have ruled out any type of firewall issue, just not sure why this service wont stay running. Thanks
