NVIT, Thank you for your quick response .... One question (my fault for not being clear to begin with)

if I just want to query the following Key-   HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Zenworks\ZenLgn" , do I just remove /v DisablePassiveModeLogin ?

Half of my systems have Zenworks the other half do not - I am trying to avoid writing anything to the once that do not have Zenworks.
Thank you
