I need to export registry keys from a remote computer for import into other remote machines (copy) using PowerShell V3.0.
When I use REG QUERY to view the registry keys thus:
reg query \\[computername]\HKLM\[subkey] /s | Out-File -append .\export.log
all subkeys are recursively output to export.log as expected.
However, when using REG SAVE to actually save a copy of the registry (in order to use REG RESTORE to import keys into target computers):
reg save \\[computername]\HKLM\[subkey] .\export.hiv
I am encountering the following error: "ERROR: The system was unable to find the specified registry key or value."
What's going on? Why can the REG QUERY find the specified keys/subkeys but not the REG SAVE?
