In the BLPackage itself do you have it set to Modify? Should be a dropdown that gives you options.
Yes, I do have that set. I don’t really understand it though. If we set to modify and the value is the same as what is on the server already, it deletes it. If we have something different with modify, it does nothing.
What version of BSA? I just happen to be on my test machine and was able to modify a REG_SZ value to something different than what was originally there. I'm on 8.3 SP3. Have you looked at the RSCD logs?
Are the values you need to change going to be the same?
not sure what you mean. This will be used to change just one value (password).
Even though modify is there, I think you can only add or delete to that kind of registry type. Add wont give you what you need?
So it’s not just user error? I will go with my add/delete package then. Thanks
From 8.2 user guide (p521):
Windows multi-value registry entries in BLPackages
Using the BLPackage editor, you can edit Windows multi-value registry entries.
When editing a Windows registry value of type REG_MULTI_SZ (a value that
accepts multiple entries), each entry is displayed as a separate child node beneath
the node for the registry value itself. For each child node, you can edit the name and
change the Add or Delete action for that node.
Each child node shows a Modify action, but selecting that action does not modify the
entry. You can only add or delete entries.
The Data field for the registry value concatenates the names of all nodes and
displays their names in encoded form. If the Multivalue property for the registry
value is set to 1, the BLPackage uses the name set for each individual node. If the
Multivalue property is set to 0, the BLPackage uses the collective name created by
concatenating the names of all nodes.
When you use a BLPackage to add an entry to a registry value, the entry is added to
the end of the list of entries. When you use a BLPackage to delete an entry from a
registry value, the system deletes the first entry it encounters that matches the entry
you have specified.
You cannot use a BLPackage to change the sequencing of nodes in a multi-value
registry value. Also, BLPackages cannot accommodate multi-value registry values
with multiple nodes that have the same name.
