Hi,

We've enabled machines to be able to store TPM information in AD, run the add-tpm script, and would now like to configure the BitLocker GPO according to some sort of best practice reference. Ideally, we would like to store a recovery password in AD. Any ideas where we can get hold of one?

Thanks!
