Issue/Introduction

 Registry location and information regarding the "Public-Opstate" registry key.

Resolution

To provide better support for a set of registry keys that are commonly used for client monitoring, the following subkeys have been moved in Symantec Endpoint Protection. If you run custom scripts against the Symantec Endpoint Protection registry, or if you have written a remote monitoring solution for an earlier release, you will need to revise them when you upgrade to this release.

All new registry subkeys are placed in the following location: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection\CurrentVersion\Public-Opstate, or under HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Symantec... on a 64-bit OS.

 

Note: This list includes only registry subkeys that were moved in this release. New subkeys are documented elsewhere.

Warning: All registry subkeys and values for Symantec Endpoint Protection should be treated as read-only.
