HTB Academy: Windows Privilege Escalation DnsAdmins

I am having trouble with this section. I am OK until “clean-up”. I am trying to delete the registry key so that I can successfully restart the DNS service. However, when I try to either quiery or delete the key i get “ERROR: Access is denied.” The commands that I am using are reg query \[machineIP]\HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\DNS\Parameters and reg delete \[machineIP]\HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\DNS\Parameters /v ServerLevelPluginDll

Same problem. jad2121 do you have any progress?

So you can finish the questions on the page without “clean up” by just following the rest of the directions on the page. That being said, I still can’t get this part to work

The main problem that I have is: despite I got to add my user to Domain Admins group I still have no access to the flag file. Neither have access to registry key. Do you have access to the flag file while for the registry key the permission is denied?


How did you finish it. I also get access denied both for registry keys as well as for the flag.txt

I have same issue. But with .dll reverse shell it’s work properly.
Any body know why Domain Admins group dosnt work here?
