Bitlocker AD backup RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hello All,

    So we started to roll out bitlocker and want to backup everyone's recovery keys to AD, we found a script that will do this for computers that already have bitlocker enabled (we have a GPO in place to do this for newly bitlockered PCs, but this doesn't work if the PC was already bitlockered)

    I created a batch file that when it's executed it runs a VBS script and this works perfectly if you run it manually, I hope to accomplish a way to get this to run via GPO. we have a lot of remote employees so not sure if a logon script will work since when they login they're not connected to the VPN (is that how it works)?

    would creating a scheduled task in GPO work? so when the remote employees connected to the VPN it will eventually create a scheduled task to run? 

    Thank you for your help. let me know if there's any additional info needed.

  • This is not a GPO or BitLocker support forum.

  • GPOs are not normally applied to VPNs.  If the machines are joined over the VPN then the GPO will apply.

    As per Bill - post in the GPO forum for help.
