Enable biometrics for laptops through GPO

Ok, I have a bunch of HP Elite x2 tablets with fingerprint readers.  Once I join them to the domain the fingerprinter reader "windows hello" goes gray and they can't use them.  I can't find a GPO on my 2016 server to enable biometrics to allow these to work.  Anyone run into this and find a solution??  HP was of no help.

You need to enable the various settings for windows hello for business. This is quite intentional so the businesses can access the device even in the event that the employee leaves or other similar circumstance. The consumer windows hello encryption steps would not provide this, so domain joined machines disable this configuration by default.
