  • Script to edit computer description

    Dear All

    This is my first post at here and I would like to ask you about script to edit computer description.

    I have create below script file as batch file and prepare to add on log on script at user 's computer.

    reg add "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters" /t REG_EXPAND_SZ /v srvcomment /d " SECTION %USERNAME%" /f

    But I found that registry of computer description is changed. But the result on system properties is not change.

    I do it wrong or not and need your comment.

    Thank you for your comment.

    Hi Mbell,

    Are you on that picture that you have in your sig? Or, are you a Technical Engineer working for a swimming pool

    By default only local Administrators are allowed to make changes to the registry keys that are under HKLM, that is probably why the logon script is not working. Futhermore the changes in that registry key requires a reboot to take effect.
