How to use registry keys to point TEM Clients to a specific TEM Relay

Resolving the problem

To manually point a TEM Client to use a specific TEM Relay, make the following changes to the TEM Client's registry:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\BigFix\EnterpriseClient\Settings\Client\__RelaySelect_Automatic] "value"="0"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\BigFix\EnterpriseClient\Settings\Client\__RelayServer1] "value"="http://relay_server_name:52311/bfmirror/downloads/"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\BigFix\EnterpriseClient\Settings\Client\__RelayServer2] "value"="http://relay_server_name:52311/bfmirror/downloads/"

Modify relay_server_name and port number to match your needs. After completing the registry changes, restart the TEM Client service and the TEM Client should start communicating with the TEM Relay.
