Restore GUID on HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Parameters\LanManServer
Posted on 2004-03-26
I've run into a doozy... While trying to import certain registry from one machine to the next, instead of exporting 1 registry on the LanManServer, I've exported ALL registry settings on the folder.
Most of these can be easily fixed. However, the thing that worries me the most is the GUID. Since I do not know what the old GUID is, I am stuck. I haven't shut down the system yet, so it must still be in the system somewhere.
The question is, how do I find out what is the current GUID on the system, and if that's not possible, what can I do to restore it back.. or at least not cause any problems?
This is a DC/Exchange server (I know, I know.... should be more careful... only had 3 hours of sleep the last few days...).
I am going to continue to search for answers, but I thought that perhaps this is a faster/easier way to do things.... Never asked a question here before, figure with the newly acquired points, perhaps I should :-)
Thanks for the help.
