How to set COM Security permissions with Registry Edit

Posted on 2014-07-28
Last Modified: 2014-07-29
Good Day,

We are needing to update all of our PCs with the following:

COM Security Settings > Access Permissions > Anonymous Logon = Local Access & Remote Access Allow

We are wanting to do this by creating a registry entry that is distributed by our Group Policy. However, we are needing some assistance in locating the registry key(s) to modify. I have uploaded a screen shot to display the graphical location to set this.

We have a very large number of PCs in our organization, this is why we are wanting to push the change rather than go to each PC one at  a time.
