Remote Registry Export from NT

I'm looking for a way to export a registry key (DNS Settings) from remote NT server machines. I would like to run this on a 2003 Server. I've tried Emco's remote registry exporter but it doesn't save anything even though it reports a completed export. I want to save the exported keys(s) in a reg file on the 2003 server machine. After the registry key is exported, I'll then copy the DNS zone files to the same 2003 serve rmachine as a backup of the DNS.

Any ideas how to do this? Reg Export doesn't work on remote machines and I'd rather not have to run the actual export on the remote machines. If I could do it from the 2003 server it would save a large headache.

regedt32.exe should be able to do that. Connect to the remote registry, then try to save the hive/key in question.

I need this to run automatically as a scheduled task and preferrably from the  command line.
regedit /e output.reg  <full path to key>



Will output the entire SOFTWARE hive. If you either terminal service on or run it as a scheduled task on the remote machine you will get the hive you want.

Can I do this for a remote machine or do I have to run it locally on each server. I have 14 other DNS servers across the WAN to backup.

Take a look at Resplendent Registrar v 4.00, 
maybe it can do the job.

Or use sysinternals ( psexec (include in PsTools to remote execute the regedit commands.
