New to KACE and have just learnt how to deploy an image via PXE to workstations.

I created and install that installed Windows 7 and some Apps. I need to know how to enable BitLocker as part of the deployment?

Would really appreciate the help!

seems like you can enable BitLocker using WMI scripting. For more info on this have a look here.

  • We are now able to deploy Bitlocker using a K2000 post installation task to Windows 7 x64 machines. However it only works for us if we run the post install command before installing the K1000 agent.

    Also at the moment we currently manually configure the BIOS so that TPM is enabled before kicking off the build process however you should be able to install Dell's CCTK and configure it using a post install command.

    The commands which we run in order to enable Bitlocker are (note - I'm not using our production password in this example and you will need to change it to something else):

    %windir%\system32\manage-bde.exe -tpm -takeownership 12312312
    %windir%\system32\manage-bde.exe -on C: -recoverypassword

    We have already configured a GPO in AD so that the keys auto save to AD.
    • I am new to Kace as well and have been tasked to do the same. How did you get your keys to save to AD?
