Disabling User access control in server 2008

I found the information below in a response to a Vista UAC question. Will this work for Server 2008 x64 Enterprise? I would test but Lab is offline for power upgrade and I do not want to test in a production environment.

You have to execute this command remotely: reg.exe ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v EnableLUA /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
and reboot the remote system afterwards (which can be achieved using shutdown.exe). To work with your file, you could use psexec.exe, it can work against a list of names. psexec is part of the pstools from Microsoft.

Turning off UAC
Use the following procedure to disable UAC.

To perform the following procedure, you must be able to log on with or provide the credentials of a member of the local Administrators group.

Important
Turning off UAC reduces the security of your computer and may expose you to increased risk from malicious software. We do not recommend leaving UAC disabled.
To turn off UAC
Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

In Control Panel, click User Accounts.

In the User Accounts window, click User Accounts.

In the User Accounts tasks window, click Turn User Account Control on or off.

If UAC is currently configured in Admin Approval Mode, the User Account Control message appears. Click Continue.

Clear the Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer check box, and then click OK.

Click Restart Now to apply the change right away, or click Restart Later and close the User Accounts tasks window.

I have more than 50 servers I need to disable it on. I know how to turn it off in the Control Panel. Manually making these changes and scheduling outages would be ridiculous if I can execute this on all servers at the same time using SCCM. and I can distribute this solution using SCCM 2007.
