Monitor Windows Registry from Remote Server

Hi, I know I am able to monitor the registry on the local machine where Splunk is run. How about if I want Splunk to monitor the registry of several servers on our network. I thought I would be able to do this with WMI collections but I could not figure out how to specify which specific registry values I want to monitor.

If I setup Splunk on the servers which I want to monitor and let them monitor their local registries, will I be able to forward that information to the main Splunk indexer?

I am still just learning all of Splunk functionalities, so please provide specifics or let me know if I said stated something completely wrong.

Thanks.

I don't think you can do this using WMI, at least not easily. However, yes, you can install Splunk Forwarders on each remote machine to monitor the registries and have them send that to to Splunk indexer.

Thanks for the replay. It is possible as you mentioned, but I have ran into so many other issue trying to implement it.
