Run report to list which Win 10 AD joined computers are encrypted with Bit Locker

Is there any way of running a report within a Server 2016 AD domain to list which Windows 10 computer are encrypted with Bit Locker?

If so how can this be done?

you can do it via PowerShell
Function GetStatus($ComputerName) 
    #Script block 
    $Scope = { manage-bde -cn $Env:COMPUTERNAME -status } 
        #Invoke command to remoted computer 
        $Obj = Invoke-Command -ComputerName $ComputerName -Credential $Credential  -ScriptBlock $Scope 
        $Obj | select -First ($Obj.length-1) | select -Skip 3 
     Write-Error $_  

Open in new window

for multiple computers
Get-OSCBitlockerStatus -FilePath "C:\script\computers.txt" -Credential $cre

Open in new window

If the machines are setup to add the bitlocker information (recovery, etc) to AD then you can run a powershell script to find those attributes and then list all the machines where those attributes are filled, I am not sure if this can be done if the machines were encrypted without storing the info in AD.

What is the script or the process that I can run on the domain controller to determine which Windows 10 client computers are using Bit Locker encryption?

I would never advise to run commands from remote for two reasons
1 not all machines are in the office at all times, nor are all turned on at the same time
2 this has security implications: we are using a highly privileged account and need open ports

Instead, simply use a domain startup script, a batch one-liner:
manage-bde -status c: | findstr /c:"100,0%" || md \\server\share\%computername%

Open in new window

When executed on a machine where c: is not fully encrypted, the script creates a folder on a share named as the offending computer.
