  1. Bitlocker encryption level not syncing with GPO settings


    I have a weird issue, it happens with each laptop I deploy when encrypting via Bitlocker. I have set GPO encryption level to XTS-AES 256.


    I have a very simple build for deployment so my process is pull out of box, join to domain, move computer to proper OU, turn on Bitlocker ...and then some other steps.


    The issue is that gpresult shows the specific bitlocker GPO is applied to the computer, but each time, every time, the first time I turn on bitlocker for a new computer, it defaults to 128 bit encryption. I have to stop the encryption, and restart it, before it takes the XTS-AES 256. I usually do a gpupdate /force and restart also, so I'm not sure if that plays a role in "fixing" or if it's just the fact i have to start the first one, cancel and turn it on again. I'll test that in my next deployment; In my latest build before even attempting encryption, I did gpupdate /force 2 times, with 2 restarts, but again still first time turning on bitlocker, only 128 bit encryption.

    :)

  4. Bitlocker encryption level not syncing with GPO settings

    BitLocker not encrypting?

    Thanks for the reply.

    Obviously (from my post), I expected the file to be encrypted everywhere.

    So, by "encrypt it at the file level", do you mean run BitLocker on the individual files, or set the encryption checkbox on the individual file's properties?
