    Edit registry remotely?

    I have just setup a new Photo server at one of my schools to act as a library of all school related images. Its running Menalto Gallery2 and I want to use the upload via XP wizard so staff can upload photos to their year group galleries easily.

    Now I need to import the registry settings to all the workstations so that they can use the publish to web option in xo to access the galleries. So is there a way to import reg scripts to machines remotely?

    Cheers

    The publish to web option is probably in the user hive (HKCU) so not suitable for WMI scripting.


    You have two options both launched for a GPO:

    Administrative templates or Login Scripts (modify HKCU in VBS, KiXtart, Python etc).

    PolicyMaker perhaps. Ask ajbritton as he has more experience with this app.

    you can also use the 'reg' command to do it in .CMD/.BAT files.

    Cheers for the input guys. I must be on a go slow today. Forgot about using regedit /s in startup scripts.

    Anyways have made a vbs script that I can stick into a GPO that add the setting I need.

    Yeah these should run in the scripts as arbitrary CMD and BAT should excluded from the excutable whitelist.
