Besadmin EnterpriseServerFolder regkey missing

(imported topic written by SystemAdmin)

Hi Bigfix Forum,

I was unable to run besadmin.exe. It does not appear to have been installed in the “Tivoli Endpoint Manager” group in the start menu, but the exe is present in C:\Program Files\BigFix Enterprise\BES Server\BESAdmin.exe

Anyhow, I run it, and put in my site key, and it gives me the error:

“Enterprise Server/EnterpriseServerFolder regkey missing”

I checked in the registry, and found there was no such key or value EnterpriseServerFolder in:

HKLM\Software\BigFix\Enterprise Server

I added a new string value EnterpriseServerFolder = C:\Program Files\BigFix Enterprise\BES Server

and it did resolve my issue.

Maybe this will help someone else. Good luck!
