how to import bitlocker password id to active directory RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello ,

    We have 300+ laptops with bitlocker already enabled. Now I am trying to add password/Id to active directory for each one. I searched this online but unable to find a solution. 

    currently I am working with windows 10 1909

    AD is already setup to receive these BL passwords(id)

    I tried using manage-bde method it is failing and I get following output

    PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> manage-bde -protectors -adbackup c: -computername pcname-id {XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX}

    BitLocker Drive Encryption: Configuration Tool version 10.0.19041 Copyright (C) 2013 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved. ERROR: Invalid Syntax. "-noninteractive" was not understood. Type "manage-bde -?" for usage. PS C:\WINDOWS\system32>


    I do not understand why it is showing -noneInterActive error. I didn't even use this option.

    I gave on this and tried 2nd way but changing the gpedit settings so I force the bitlocker to upload the password to AD. 

    I do not get any error after enabling this method but password isn't showing in AD neither. 

    any ideas what I can try?
