Challenge

VSS fails with the following error:

Starting guest agent
Cannot initialize information about the guest's system. Target host: [xxx.xx.xxx.x].
Cannot collect metrics about the guest's operation system. Cannot open sessions
manager's registry key
. Win32 error:Access is denied. 

Cause

Typically this is simply meaning that the remote registry service is not running on the source guest virtual machine, or it is inaccessible due to firewall restriction.  

Solution

Configure the following permissions on the registry key below:
 
      "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurePipeServers\winreg"
 
Permissions:
 
"Administrators" -  "Full Control"
"Local Service"  -  "Read"
 
Restart "Remote Registry" Service to apply the new settings.
