Issue/Introduction



Is it possible to disable the store procedure XP_INSTANCE_REGREAD without harming SD?

Environment

Service Desk 14.1 or higher
SQL Server DB 2012 or higher

Resolution

Service Desk does not use the Windows Registry or SSMS which is used by the XP_INSTANCE_REGREAD store procedure when it is called, so there should be no harm to SD.
