Is there a way to push a certain registry value out over an ip range by using power shell?  I saw this the code below but thats by an individual computer.  Could you just use CMP=10.1.10.50-10.1.10.100 ?
SET "Cmp=RemoteComputerName"
SET "Key=HKLM\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters
SET "Item=srvcomment"
SET "Data=This will be the new Description of the COmputer!"

REG ADD "\\%cmp%\%Key%" /v %Item% /t REG_SZ /d "%Data%" /f

You can use REG ADD from within a powershell script like this.

I have not tested so test before running on all computers.


$Item = "srvcomment"
$Data = "This will be the new Description of the COmputer!"
$Key = "HKLM\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters"
$Q = [CHAR]34
10..100 | %{
Invoke-Expression "REG ADD \\10.1.1.$($_)\$key /v $Item /t REG_SZ /d $q$Data$q /f"
}

So would this work if execute or do you see something wrong?  It would set the value on a remote machine, then reset the remote machines network adapter:

$Item = "LOM"
$Data = "1"
$Key = "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002bE10318}\0011\"

REG ADD \\10.1.10.$($_)\$key /v $Item /t REG_SZ /d $q$Data$q /f

$adaptor = Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_NetworkAdapter | Where-Object {$_.Name -like "*Wireless*"}
$adaptor.Disable()
$adaptor.Enable()

You will need to use invoke-expression to run REG ADD

Invoke-Expression REG ADD \\10.1.10.$($_)\$key /v $Item /t REG_SZ /d $q$Data$q /f  


I am not sure about disabling the network adapter, I am not able to test right now.

This should have quotes

Invoke-Expression "REG ADD \\10.1.10.$($_)\$key /v $Item /t REG_SZ /d $q$Data$q /f"
