Changing WINS registry entry on 600 PCs

By royceeb ·
I need to find a way to create a script to change the WINS entry in the registry on 660 PCs getting past the subkey for the specific NICs on each PC. Since the NICs are not all the same, the sub key under HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NetBT\Adapters is different. Hence I need to find a wild card that will allow me to put in the script, a way to get past this road block to the next key to change the WINS entry. Huffing to to all PCs is not a desired option. HELP!!!

Why don't you use DHCP to propagate the new WINS info?
You could reduce the IP renew time to 1 day, and/or after changes are made on the DHCP just do a Release all/renew/all.
