  • Thanks for posting your query to the forum. I did review your requirement and it seems you wanted to enable the remote registry services on multiple client workstations(Domain joined) and also need to restrict the settings to a specific AD group.

    So as this is a two step requirement, (Enabling the remote registry and to specific AD group), here are the two parts solution:

    a-We can achieve the activating remote registry using the group policy using the below mentioned settings:

    1. Open the Group Policy editor.
    2. Navigate to, Local Computer Policy > Computer Configuration > Policies > Windows Settings > Security Settings > System Services.
    3. In the right hand pane locate Remote Registry.
    4. Define the policy, and set the Startup type to Automatic.

    b-We can make use of Security filtering and only add those computer accounts and the specific group/user to which we wanted to apply the above settings.

    For more information, refer to the steps mentioned in the below link.

    Hope the above information helps to fulfill your requirement.
