MBAM - Master Recovery key RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,
    We are in the planning stages for a MBAM deployment.  I remember reading a while ago about creating a master Bitlocker recovery key (Domain Admin Access only) incase the recovery key fails for whatever reason.

    That said, can anyone please assist me in finding literature on this feature?  I can't find it anywhere.

  • IF you have the right recovery password associated with the recovery key ID, it will never fail. Every machines has its own recovery key and password which is itself a master key. Access to these keys are restricted to the members of MBAM Helpdesk or Advanced Helpdesk users only.
