Bitlocker question

So I dont need MBAM to deploy Bitlocker encryption on desktops, its just used for management. Correct?

So I have 2008 environment and Win 7 Enterprise machines. I just want to use GPO. I plan to implement by:

-Turn on TPM using script(Is this necessary)
-Startup Script to initiate initial encryption
-Use GPO policy to store encryption key in AD

Anything else im missing?

Im going to have more questions later but I will post as I go along.

Do you plan to set a PIN? Or without pin?

Expect your machine to run at least 20% slower, especially on a normal HD. Just a tad faster on an SSD.

Mcnife, not sure yet. We would have to meet on that. I would think so. We have over 3k machines.

About "Turn on TPM using script(Is this necessary?)" - sure it is necessary unless it is already turned on. It depends on what the manufacturer has set. You might Need to turn it on in the bios/uefi, so scripts alone would not be enough.
