You could add that comment in the registry also - it is stored under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters

See http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q307765 - it deals with a different problem, but describes the "srvcomment".

I went into HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet|Service\LanmanServer\Parameters and there was no such value. How do I add this value?

I added a new string value, but it did not take. What am I doing wrong. I have two machines that dont like this command.
