    I'm trying to track down info on the command line tool for BitLocker but
    haven't had any luck.

    I need to script turning it on and such for our deployment tests.

    This tool is written in VBScript to allow customization and uses the WMI
    interface to BitLocker.
    You can either manually run it under cscript, or (as most people do) follow
    the instructions when you type "manage-bde" for the first time to configure
    cscript as the default scripting host.

    We are soon moving to Vista SP1. Our computers have a C, D and an
    partition, which is the bootable one. We are going to enable BitLocke
    on both C and D, and we want to use TPM + PIN. AD schema is extended an
    a GPO which enables the PIN option is in place

    Can we use manage-bde.wsf to enable BitLocker the way we want? Or is i
    any better way to do this

    Please advice

    Best regards
