Restore GUID on HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Parameters\LanManServer

Hi all,

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.

To restore the registry
Click Options, and then click Print to print these instructions. (If you are using the Help and Support Center, click Print above the topic area.) They will not be available after you shut down your computer in step 3.
Open Registry Editor.
Click Start, and then click Shut Down.
In the list, click Restart, and then click OK.
When you see the message Please select the operating system to start, press F8.
Use the arrow keys to highlight Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER.
NUM LOCK must be off before the arrow keys on the numeric keypad will function.

Use the arrow keys to highlight an operating system, and then press ENTER.

Thanks!!!  I figure I could just do that, but really wanted to make sure since it is my Exchange Server AND Domain Controller!!

Thanks for confirming.  Oh... Another thing that happened as a result of this.... I haven't been able to restart the Exchange server without services failing (then I had to do a manual restart) for some time now... HOWEVER, it's coming up perfectly after the "Last Known Good Configuration"!!!  THanks!!  

THis is so worth it!!  Thanks again.
