Updating a registry key using GPO.
Posted on 2009-04-30
I am trying to push a registry update in our environment but I am having a hard time getting GPO to update a registry key that has been created.
Using the Group Policy Management Editor, going into:
Computer Configuration > Preferences > Windows Settings > Regsitry: I was able to create the 4 registry settings that I needed..
Now, I need to update one of these keys, so I went in and edited the registry key, and changed the action to "replace" (as per definition, it should update the key, and if it does not exist it should create it, I have also tried the update action).
However, on the end PCs, I am not seeing the change; the key has the old value.
I have tried to run gpupdate /force to force the update (and rebooting the PC) and this did not work. The computer is under the correct OU on which the policy is applied.
Am I missing a step here? Any help is appreciated.
