The following error is seen in the Rapid Recovery core when Virtual Standby is attempted:
Unknown WMI error: Illegal operation attempted on a registry key that has been marked for deletion. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800703FA)
The identity user initially logged on to the server when the application launched.
The issue happens when the identity user logs off and the COM+ application can no longer read registry keys in the profile of the identity user because of a new User Profile Service functionality of forcing the unload of the user profile when the user logs off.
Note: This User Profile Service functionality is built into the OS by default.
This is a situation where the functionality of forcing the unload of the user profile may break an application if registry handles are not closed in the process.
To resolve this problem, use either of the following methods.
Do not log on to the server for interactive sessions by using a service account.
Disable the related Windows User Profile Service feature.
To do this, follow these steps:
'DisableForceUnload' is the value added to the registry.
