File Shares from Bitlocker secured drive do not survive a restart/unlock operation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Server - Windows 2K8 R2 Enterprise server

    Client - Windows 2K8 Enterprise server

    Data drive on server has BitLocker encryption in place with shares of subfolders within , C/System volume does not

    Data Drive must be unlocked manually at boot due to C drive not being encrypted

    The shares that did exist prior to restart do not get recreated/re-appear when viewed from client or from the server

    Is this be design, and if yes, do I need to encrypt the C volume too of the server to have the shares reappear consistently or is there something else I should be doing.

    This is in my lab environment so no critical data at risk.
