    Windows Vista Bitlocker Active Directory Schema

    Hi

    Where can I find the Active Directory Schema script/procedure required to
    enable Bitlocker recovery to Active Directory? Isn't it available for
    download yet?

    Thanks.

    Regards,
    Ragnar

    Re: Windows Vista Bitlocker Active Directory Schema

    Thanks for your reply.

    However I have already tried these schema extensions in a test environment -
    they did not help me enable Bitlocker recovery to AD. The
    "VistaSecurity_TWP.doc" document refers to something called "BitLocker
    Active Directory Deployment Pack". Do you (or anyone else) know where I may
    get a hold of this, seems that this will contain additional details as well
    as the "AddWriteACEs.vbs" script needed to configure some permissions.

    Regards,
    Ragnar

    Hi Ragnar,

    You should not use ADprep on Vista DVD as the results are not what you look
    for. Microsoft will make information on storing Bitlocker Recovery keys in
    AD available soon - I'd guess when its ready ADprep command and accompanying
    ldf files on Vista DVD are there for informational purpose only and as such
    they should not be used in production AD (2000/2003/R2).

    HTH

    Hi

    Yes I also found that it did not work with these schema extensions. So it is
    as I feared - patience is required while we wait on Microsoft to provide the
    necessary information and tools....Thanks.
