I see that if I enable this policy on workstation it will prompt by bitlocker management to encrypt C:\ and enter the PIN password, so the policy works but after encryption is finish I have noticed that it encrypted only C:\ system drive.

Should I wait some time for encrypt fixed drive or it should encrypt after mbam prompt both disks?

Right, ConfigMgr1910. I will install also hotfixes available on my site. There is something related to bitlocker.




So in your opinion there is unknown bug and my configuration should work? What will be happend if I create another bitlocker policy and run on these computers? It will skip and nothing will be happend or there is a chance that MBAM encrypt D:\ drive?

Yes i will test but also I just read again MBAM documentation and I thing that i found my bad configuration. In 1910 you cannot specify auto-unlock for fixed drive or passwor policie (I see that feature is now available in 2002 version). The documentation clearly say that:


Fixed data drive encryption
Suggested configuration: Enabled

Manage your requirement for encryption of fixed data drives. If you enable this setting, BitLocker requires users to put all fixed data drives under protection. It then encrypts the data drives.

When you enable this policy, either enable auto-unlock or the settings for Fixed data drive password policy.

Configure auto-unlock for fixed data drive: Allow or require BitLocker to automatically unlock any encrypted data drive. To use auto-unlock, also require BitLocker to encrypt the OS drive.
If you don't configure this setting, BitLocker doesn't require users to put fixed data drives under protection. - I think this is it :)

If you disable this setting, users can't put their fixed data drives under BitLocker protection. If you disable this policy after BitLocker encrypts fixed data drives, BitLocker decrypts the fixed data drives.
