System Configuration: Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard Disk Configuration: RAID1
We have a newly built system that is joined to a domain and has the proper GPOs for BitLocker already setup. We install bitlocker rebooting the machine as instructed. Next, we need to setup BitLocker so we run the following command:
bdehdcfg -target c: shrink -newdriveletter s: -size 1500
We receive the message:
This computers hard drive is properly configured for BitLocker. It is not necessary to run BitLocker Setup.
The problem is, BitLocker is NOT ready to be installed at all...there is no additional partition for it to use and creating it manually and running a
-merge recalls the same message about it already being configured.
The problem is, its not truly configured when looking at Disk Management the disks do not resemble the other machines in our environment where BitLocker properly works. It will begin encrypting and then fails halfway through.
