BitLocker remote unlocking

Hi,

is there a way to unlock BitLocker remotely for a Windows VPS? The ISP doesn't support a vTPM at all.
I liked to use LUKS on a Linux VPS which is unlocked thru a ssh session.
Thanks!

If Windows is running and you would like to unlock a data (non-system) drive, this can be done using Powershell Remoting or psexec.
So you start a shell on the remote machine like this
psexec \\remotepc cmd -ru adminonremote -rp adminonremotepassword
Then on the shell you go
manage-bde -unlock x: -pw
(-pw is for password protector and the password will be asked for).
