Remote registry and Vista

In order to remotely manage and patch Vista, you need to tweak and reenable the remote registry service.


To do this via group policy, build a policy that turns it on like this:



The group policy setting is under computer configuration, Windows settings,
Security settings, System services.

Scroll to “remote registry”, define policy setting, choose to make it
automatic.


Voila.
