    I am trying to turn on Bitlocker. I have setup the drive and manually
    changed the policies since I do not have TPM. Now I am getting the error
    message, "CANNOT RUN The specified name either does not exist or cannot be
    contacted."

    Can anyone help? I have searched the web and this site but cannot find any
    info.

    Thanks in advance,
    DA

    I am trying to turn on Bitlocker. I have setup the drive and manually
    At EXACTLY what point in the process do you get this message?

    >, in the

    You should probably check the polices that you changed.
    I'm not sure that you've accurately reported the error
    message you're receiving but on first blush it sounds to
    me like you've enabled the Turn on Bitlocker backup to
    Active Directory Domain Services option and that you've
    also set the option to require a successful backup to AD
    DS in order to enable BitLocker. If you turn this on and
    you can't connect to the domain, or if the domain has not
    been prepared to store the BDE backup, enabling BitLocker
    will fail.
    As Jesper indicates, telling us exactly where in the
    process this fails (along with an accurate report of the
    exact error message) would be useful.

    The problem was I had the backup to Active Directory Domain Services option
    selected like suggested. Once unchecked it worked fine...

    Unfortunately, The error message I gave was the exact error message given.
    Not terribly informative...

    Thanks for the Help!
