Configuring Bitlocker

Last Modified: 2016-11-22
We have a Dell VRTX with two blade servers and shared storage.

All physical hosts and all virtual machines are Windows Server 2012 R2.

The Hyper-V guests are all in a Hyper-V cluster already.  We have the quorum, and three CSV's on the VRTX shared storage.

We would like to enable bitlocker for the hosts to encrypt both their OS drives and the CSV drives.  The CSV's do NOT have drive letters assigned to them and are mounted under c:\clustersharedstorage for both hosts.

The domain controllers are also guests on the VRTX.  We do not have a separate domain controller outside the VRTX.

Can we enable bitlocker on the hosts to be TPM only and save to Active Directory?  What would be the best way?
