Does anybody know what registry key enables File and Print Sharing? I have about 87 machines that currently have F/P sharing turned off for security reasons and i need to deploy Epolicy Orchestrator to them. Instead of a login script to install the software I'd like to change the registry key to turn on F/P sharing, deploy the agent and then turn the key off again.
