Good Morning,

I am in the need of a powershell script that will add or run a specific reg key which I have exported if it helps here is the key:
-----
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\IniFileMapping\Autorun.inf]
@="@SYS:DoesNotExist"


[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\amsint32]
-----
I would like the powershell script to access a full list of servers and run this across all of them. Is there an easy way to get this done? at this point I will take any recommendations.

Thanks,
Dave

you can use (presuming the key exists)

new-itemproperty -path "hklm:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\IniFileMapping\Autorun.inf\" -name "@" -propertytype string -value "@SYS:DoesNotExist"

for remote registry download from MSDN http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/PSRemoteRegistry 

where servers.txt contains a list of server names

$Key = "hklm:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\IniFileMapping\Autorun.inf"
Get-Content servers.txt | Set-RegString -hive LocalMachine -Key $Key -Value "@" -Data "@SYS:DoesNotExist" -Force -PassThru
