How to access HKEY_CURRENT_USER registry entry remotely.

So just recently I’ve been asked by Microsoft support to perform a change in the registry to avoid getting many local failure email messages saved in local OST.

The instruction how to do it, can be found under (In our case the solution didn’t work at all by the way):

As you might see in the article the path given is:

hkey_current_user\software\microsoft\office\1x.0\outlook\options

This kind of change can be done remotely as well, all you need to have is an AD SID of the user.

In my case it was:

ADUSerPID

Knowing this and remote station name, I was able to reach out to the particular registry branch by:

  1. Opening  Regedit tool and choosing Connect Network Registry

Finding computer in AD, and clicking ok, and navigating to particular registry key:
