Is it possible to create a custom .adm file so the following registry entry can be applied via group policy?

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters

Or is there a better way to do this?

There's already a section in the GPMC to apply registry keys manually with the default adm templates. I'm writing up the steps for it now. Give me about 5 minutes to finish and you will have your answer.

1.      Open up the GPMC console window and expand the computer configuration
2.      Expand “Windows Settings”
3.      Expand “Security Settings”
4.      Click on “registry”
5.      Then on the right side you can right click and select add key
6.      Here you can either navigate through the 3 main keys, or just type in the key you want to add manually.

It might take a couple time of playing with but once you get it in there and test it out properly but I know for a fact that it works as I am pushing out similar policies for adding keys to one of our remote platforms. Remember though, it has to be linked to the computers OU and will only go on the computers in that OU.
