Hello,

is there a way to enable bitlocker using a script or command line for all the computers in the company without using TPM and include the password within the script ( i dont want to type the password for every command like this one "manage-bde -on C: -pw" this command it will ask me to enter a password ) ??

finally store all the recovery keys in AD DS.

    Hi,
    You could try the following PowerShell cmdlet to automate Bitlocker deployment:
    The Enable-BitLocker cmdlet enables BitLocker Drive Encryption for a volume.
    Enable-BitLocker

    Best regards.

    thank you for ur reply.

    i have to use Bitlocker wihtout TPM as its disabled by default from the BIOS, it will be hard for me to enable it remotely on all the computers especially that computers are spread all over the word.

    for now i tried Enable-Bitlocker but i see these errors:

    PS C:\Windows\system32> $SecureString = ConvertTo-SecureString "1234" -AsPlainText -Force
    PS C:\Windows\system32> Enable-BitLocker -MountPoint "C:" -EncryptionMethod Aes256 -UsedSpaceOnly -Pin $SecureString -passwordrecoverykey
    Enable-BitLocker : Parameter set cannot be resolved using the specified named parameters.
    At line:1 char:1

    • Enable-BitLocker -MountPoint "C:" -EncryptionMethod Aes256 -UsedSpace ...
    • ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    • CategoryInfo : InvalidArgument: (:) [Enable-BitLocker], ParameterBindingException
    • FullyQualifiedErrorId : AmbiguousParameterSet,Enable-BitLocker

    another thing, is there a way to enable bitlocker on all the partitions on the computers, instead of just mention the drive like the above aommand ??

    thank you again for ur reply.
