Unable to set up BitLocker on the device using BitLocker policy

expand collapsive

Hey everyone, I have applied a BitLocker policy on my VM devices as i want my users to be able to log in to their devices without typing in a bitLocker PIN (automatically). Also, TPM is enabled for all the devices. But I am facing this issue:

Error popup during BitLocker encryption on device end

Does anybody have an idea what’s going on?

    Hey!! This error comes up when you modify BitLocker settings in the Registry Editor or Local Group Policy Editor. Maybe the configurations you have used in the Bitlocker policy aren’t correct. Can you share the configurations have you used.

  • Hey @Tom, thanks for reaching out to us.
    Thank you @Dakarai! As @Dakarai pointed out it’s due to the incorrect configurations provided in the BitLocker policy.

    Also, follow the steps below to enable auto-unlock for BitLocker via the Control Panel.

    1. Open Control Panel. 
    2. Choose System and Security, and then click BitLocker Drive Encryption. 
    3. Search for the drive you want to set auto-unlock for. Use the BitLocker password to unlock the drive if it is locked. 
    4. Then, click Turn on auto-unlock.

    But make sure that these drives don’t host an operating system installed on them.

    Please feel free to reach out to us in case of further queries.
