Citrix PVS Target Device need to edit the client_name in OS client registry

Hello Guys..

I have multiple target device in Citrix PVS which I need to edit "client_name" and "browser" under this registry (see below). This is to enable backup of target devices which has persitent disk (drive D:, E:)

My problem is every time I reboot it will go back to its orginal computer name of the master image, Im thinking of solution is to create a GPO that will get the the computer name of target device everytime it boot or startup thru registry.

my question is can I use variable %computername%.domain.com using the registry value (REG_EXPAND_SZ) to edit the "client_name" and "browser". I saw the current registry value in (REG_DWORD).

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\VERITAS\NetBackup\CurrentVersion\Config\Client_Name

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\VERITAS\NetBackup\CurrentVersion\Config\Browser
