Hi,
I have been requested to encrypt all laptops in the domain with bitlocker. we currently have  several domain controllers. mostly win2003 but some or win2008r2. The laptops are win 2007pro.
I would like to set it up so that encrypted PC's can be managed from AD by any administrator and store all keys etc. I am told that there may be problems doing this due to the win2003 domain. Is this true, what kind of problem will we have ?.
If it is possible has anyone got a step by step guide to rolling out Bitlocker in a 2003 domain ?
If I install bitlocker now will I run into problems when I upgrade the domain (eventually)

Thanks

as long as the 2003 domain controllers have sp1 it should be fine
