Collecting Registry Info within Inventory

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I'm try to retrieve information from the registry on client workstations. I have read a few guides and sucessfully used RegKeyToMOFv3_R2 for a previous task however this time around I would like to report on data within HKey_Current_User.

 

By default the RegKeyToMOFv3_R2 application targets HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.

 

Does anyone know if the output can simply be edited to the HKCU location?

 

Many thanks, Andy

No, you have use Reg2mof to collect HKCU. You only method to collect this data is to script it and store it someplace that CM can inventory it.

Hi Garth,

 

Thanks for the reply but I don't follow.

 

Where you mention 'Reg2mof' are you referring to a different product or the RegKeyToMOF that I've already got (authored by Mark Cochrane)? Could you clarify please?

 

Thanks

um, 'correct' that it's a different product or the same?!

 

I'm searching online for Reg2Mof but not finding anything seperate to the RegKeytoMof app that I've used previously. If I can use this that's fine but I don't know how to change from HKLM to HKCM.

ok, I think I've caught up now. I can't inventory HKCU in this way as the client runs as the 'system' and not the actual user so won't give me the desired results.

 

I'll try the script/store/inventory method instead.

 

Thanks
