Remote registry is used to modify the System Description of another machine.

  1. Connect to the Management of that computer and turn on the service 'Remote Registry' service.
  2. Launch 'regedit' from a run prompt. Click on File, select 'Connect Network Registry' and enter the computer name that you want to connect to.
  3. Navigate to HKEYLOCALMACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\LanmanServer\Parameters
  4. If there is a srvcomment already created, double click on that and change the value to what it needs to be so the System Description is correct. If it is not there, right click in the right pane, select New string value. Edit the name to = srvcomment and the data value to be the System Description name.
