I have a script to add snmp settings a group of servers that need to be monitored by HP SIM. The script work fine except I have been asked to add a different "Value Data" to the "sysLocation". The sysLocation string value is a default windows value wiht no entry for "value data". I need to change that using my reg add script.

I have tried to add the value, delete the value and recreate. It seems the  string is locked, the permissions are correct. I am just having issues with this one string.

Has anyone scripted the attribute change to this string? If so how? thanks ahead of time for the help.
objshell.Run "reg add \\" & strComputer & "\HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SNMP\Parameters\RFC1156Agent\ /ve sysLocation /t REG_SZ /d XX-location-XX"

Try below:
 
DIM Path,Location
Path="HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SNMP\Parameters\RFC1156Agent\"
Location="XX-location-XX"
WshShell.RegWrite  Path & "sysLocation",Location,"REG_SZ"

It changes the attribute! I am curious as to why the reg add will not change the value. Do you have any insight into this?

thanks again for your help.
