Hello Team,

I am trying to add a reg key and DWORD values via GPO.

Here is what I have:
REG ADD HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\NetCache\ExclusionErrorSuppressionList\ /v \\*\*\*\*.pst /t REG_DWORD

Works great for adding the one value:  \\*\*\*\*.pst  REG_DWORD (0)

But i want to add a few more values in one shot, notably.
\\*\*\*\*.pst
\\*\*\*\*.mdb
\\*\*\*\*.ldb
\\*\*\*\*.ost

Can someone rerite this for me, does have to be all the values, but just shot me how to have multuple values entered in a key in one command.

THANK YOU!

The reg.exe tool will not do what you want.  Just create a BAT file and enter:

REG ADD HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\NetCache\ExclusionErrorSuppressionList\ /v \\*\*\*\*.pst /t REG_DWORD
REG ADD HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\NetCache\ExclusionErrorSuppressionList\ /v \\*\*\*\*.mdb /t REG_DWORD
REG ADD HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\NetCache\ExclusionErrorSuppressionList\ /v \\*\*\*\*.ldb /t REG_DWORD
REG ADD HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\NetCache\ExclusionErrorSuppressionList\ /v \\*\*\*\*.ost /t REG_DWORD

Or setup a loop:

for %a in (pst mdb ldb ost) do REG ADD HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\NetCache\ExclusionErrorSuppressionList\ /v \\*\*\*\%a /t REG_DWORD


use two %s if in a batch file..
