I need to make a adjustment to users security policy regarding NTLM authentication

I don't know exactly how other users may have their workstations security policy configured, I just need to applythis one change.  I'm trying to get something like the below to work, but no dice as of yet.

To apply a policy addendum:
    c:\>secedit /configure /db secedit.sdb /cfg c:\NTLM-FIX.inf

 - contents of c:\NTLM-FIX.inf  -

      [Registry Values]
      machine\system\currentcontrolset\control\lsa\lmcompatibilitylevel=4,1

Make the changes that are required to a machine,
Then export each registry that has been modified.

Have a look at the contents, it will show you what reg keys are modified..
Now you know what information you need, then create a GPO to apply those registry entries to all machines, that require it.

Yes, editing the registry seems to be the only hope for such one off configurations (never could get secedit to work without at least some sort of warning or error anyway)

I ended up dumping the registry before the change, then after the change, THEN used WinMerge to find those hard to notice dword value changes http://winmerge.org
