I would like to be able to change the SRV Comment(Computer Description) on remote computers (Win7 AND XP) using powershell. I have built several scripts, but either it only works locally OR I need to install a plug-in(PSRemoteRegistry) that is only effective againt Windows 7 Machines.
Can anyone help me with the best course of action for this?
Here are some links I have been using to reference:

1. remote registry needs to be enabled
2. You need to run the script using the proper user account that has permissions to the remote registry
3. PSRemoteRegistry only needs to be loaded on the machine that is running the script and not on the client machines and only if you are using powershell 3.0.

A simple way of testing if you have the right user account permissions is to load regedit on the machine that you want to run the registry change script.. and then connect to the remote machine and see if you can access the key. It needs to be a local administrator account
