bitlocker deployment mdt issue

jochen 1 Reputation point

Hi everybody,

I m realizing a master of Windows 11 through MDT and everything alright expect bitlocker' s step which doesn t show up while installing the master.

Bitlocker task is enabled into task sequences.

In My rules, skipbitlocker is equal to NO.

As alternative I added a powershell script at "state restore" step but encrypting doesn t work because of a media which is present (installation cd) but i can t unmount installation media.

Enable-Bitlocker -MountPoint c: -UsedSpaceOnly -SkipHardwareTest -RecoveryKeyPath "c:\" -RecoveryKeyProtector
(Get-BitLockerVolume -MountPoint c).KeyProtector > $env:UserProfile\Desktop\BitLocker_Recovery_Key.txt

Thks for your help ;)

    Thanks for posting in Microsoft MECM Q&A forum.

    1,Do you get any error about Bitlocker failure? Please help check smsts.log, bdd.log, setuperr.log and setupact.log on the client to see if there is any helpful information.

    2,You could refer to below guides to enable BitLocker in MDT:
    Set up MDT for BitLocker
    Enabling, Activating, and Owning the TPM for the Enable BitLocker step in MDT

    Hope it helps. Thanks for your time.
