Hi,

We are using Windows Server 2003 domain controllers and our client machines are running on Windows xp. I need to make one registy key value from 1 to 0 by using Login Script.

The registy key is as given below:

"Hkey_Local_Machine\System\CurrentConrolSet\Control\Filesystem\NtfsDisable8dot3NameCreation"

By default this value is 1 but I need to change this one to 0.

Please provide me the Login Script for me sothat I can put this in System Startup Scipts using Gpo.

Thanks in Advance.

You can create a custom ADM or a script to add the .reg file.  I don't have time to test right now but maybe someone else does.  I don't want to post a script without testing.

The AD team has a good blog entry on the subject   http://blogs.technet.com/b/askds/archive/2007/08/14/deploying-custom-registry-changes-through-group-policy.aspx

Notice they also show how to do it using group policy preferences.  If you have one Windows 7 or 2008 box on the domain you can use that method.

Thanks

Mike

I don't want to use any Group Policy Preference for this.

Please provide me a Login Script for this.

Create that entry on a Windows machine.
Export the key to a file e.g. reg_update.reg
copy file to \\domain\netlogon
update your logon script with
regedit.exe /s \\domain\netlogon\reg_update.reg
