Windows 7 Bitlocker - Data Recovery Agent missing from GPO RRS feed

  • Question

  • Trying to setup GPO management for our W7 Bitlocker deployment.

    We have copied into oour GPO central respository the W7 admx files so we have access to all W7 GPO settings.

    We would first likr to setup Data Recovery Agents but are unable to because we are missing the GPO setting "Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Public Key Policies\BitLocker Drive Encryption"

    Does this require the admx files from a 2008 Server R2 install?

    thanks for any help

  • This setting is not a part of the ADMX files the ADMX files only contain settings under Administrative Templates in the Group Policy Editor.

    You need a Windows 7 system with RSAT or Windows Server 2008 R2 system to put the certificate in the Group Policy.
