If you have Security Suite, ST000015 and ST000102 are what you're looking for.
I don't! LDMS, and Patch Management I have.
Your post says KEY-HKLM, not KEY=HKLM -- is that copy and pasted from LDAPPL3.TEMPLATE?
If that doesn't do it, I'd check and make sure that the LDAPPL3 method supports REG_DWORD... I know it supports REG_SZ and doesn't support REG_BINARY, but I don't know if it can do REG_DWORD or not. This is why ldms_client has an HKLM reader.
that's it...it does indeed scan for DWORDs....I had '-' instead of '='.
I am a fool! thanks a lot for replying.
