Hello Goodnight

We have windows server 2016 and 2019 servers, I see that it has Bitlocker, it is required to remove them.

Both servers have drive C and 3 more drives (these 3 are the ones with BL)

When I want to leave them Off I get the following error message:

I would like you to help me what I can do, since they are Database servers.
Regards

    Hi @ENRIQUE VAZQUEZ MORALES

    If you have made any recent updates try removing them and see if that sorts the issue. Here is a thread as well that discusses the same issue and you can try out some troubleshooting steps from this and see if that helps you to sort the Issue.

    Hi @Limitless Technology

    Thanks for the information I will validate and see what results. check at first glance, they are servers that have more than two years with the bitlocker.

    We are using hyperconverged system with no way to root the disk arrays.

    Regards
