  1. Bitlocker will not encrypt - Error 0x8000500 -contact the domain


    I am trying to encrypt a new Windows 10 pc with Bitlocker. It has to be connected to our domain to store the key in Active Directory. It will not encrypt. I am connected to our VPN and am able to access network folders but it says it cannot contact our domain.

    Any suggestions?
