Hello,

 

Does anyone know if its possible to enable BitLocker for Windows 10 computers via the WAC anywhere or anyhow?

 

I have inherited a Windows domain with around 200 Windows 10 computers and need to somehow enable all pc's with BitLocker without visiting them one by one manually.  We do not have any other MDM or Intune type of system.

 

Thanks

Hi @Roger Patel 

I have implemented BDE (Bit-locker Drive Encryption) around 120 remote devices, I used Quick Assist (Windows 10 built-in remote access tool) to implement BDE. Quick Assist doesn't support to launch the application in elevated mode; however, I wrote a cmd script that I execute on the remote devices. I can share the script if you are going to implement it that way.
