Hi All,

I wonder if it is possible to deploy MS Exchange Server Mailbox and CAS server role with Bit Locker Drive Encryption enabled ?

It will be deployed as VMware ESXi 5.1 virtual machine on Windows Server 2012 guest OS VM.

Yes, Bit locker feature is supported on exchange 2013, Go through below document and search for bit locker, Note: make sure you go through limitations as well..

Thank you, so in this case can I actually put the BitLocker drive in another VMDK or local drive partition ?

I would prefer to put bitlocker drive on same vmdk (shared LUN), I would recommend to test yourself in your environment before any changes and make sure you have backups before trying anything.

Thanks man, does this means: http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=2036142 that BitLocker is not supported to be run inside production VM ?
