multiple ccSvcHst.exe on a terminal server
I have terminal servers that load mulitple instances of ccSvcHst.exe and the solution seems to be in this document however i'm unable to make the registry change.
SmcGui must be disabled by adding the following DWORD registry value on the Terminal Server:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection\SMC\LaunchSmcGui = 0
I get an error "Cannot edit LaunchSMCGui: Error writing the value's new contents." When attempting this change. Any tips? Running client version 12.1.2015.2015 on 2008 R2 fully patched. I almost think that SEP is preventing the registry change but even disabling SEP via the GUI still does not allow the registry edit. I checked my Application and Device Control policies but I don't have anything active that would block registry changes. I am logged in with domain admin rights.
