Understanding MBAM Reports in Configuration Manager

Updated: April 1, 2013

Applies To: Microsoft BitLocker Administration and Monitoring 2.0

When Microsoft BitLocker Administration and Monitoring (MBAM) is installed with the Configuration Manager Integrated topology, the hardware compliance and reporting features are moved into the Configuration Manager infrastructure and out of MBAM. When you use the Configuration Manager topology, you run reports from Configuration Manager rather than from MBAM, except for the Recovery Audit Report, which you continue to access by using the Administration and Monitoring Website.

The reports for the Configuration Manager Integrated topology show BitLocker compliance for the enterprise and for individual computers and devices that MBAM manages. The reports provide both tabular information and charts, and enable you to filter reports to view data from different perspectives.

The information in this topic describes the MBAM reports that you run from Configuration Manager. For information about MBAM reports for the Stand-alone topology, see Understanding MBAM Reports.

Accessing Reports in Configuration Manager

To access the Reports feature in Configuration Manager, open the Configuration Manager console. To display the list of available reports:

  • In Configuration Manager 2007, expand the Computer Management node, and then expand the Reporting node.

  • In System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, in the Monitoring workspace under Overview, expand the Reporting node and then click Reports.

BitLocker Enterprise Compliance Dashboard

The BitLocker Enterprise Compliance Dashboard provides the following graphs, which show BitLocker compliance status across the enterprise:

  • Compliance Status Distribution

  • Non Compliant Errors Distribution

  • Compliance Status Distribution by Drive Type

Compliance Status Distribution

This pie chart shows computer compliance statuses within the enterprise, and shows the percentage of computers, compared to the total number of computers in the selected collection, that have that compliance status. The actual number of computers with each status is also shown. The pie chart shows the following compliance statuses:

  • Compliant

  • Non Compliant

  • User Exempt

  • Temporary User Exempt

  • Policy Not Enforced

  • Unknown -computers whose status was reported as an error, or devices that are part of the collection but have never reported their compliance status, for example, if they are disconnected from the organization

Non Compliant Errors Distribution

This pie chart shows the categories of computers in the enterprise that are not compliant with the BitLocker drive encryption policy, and shows the number of computers in each category. Each category percentage is calculated from the total number of non-compliant computers in the collection.

  • User postponed encryption

  • Unable to find compatible TPM

  • System Partition not available or large enough

  • Policy conflict

  • Waiting for TPM auto provisioning

  • An unknown error has occurred

  • No information – computers that do not have the MBAM Client installed, or that have the MBAM Client installed but not activated, for example, the service is not working

Compliance Status Distribution by Drive Type

This bar chart shows the current BitLocker compliance status by drive type. The statuses are “Compliant” and “Non Compliant.” Bars are shown for fixed data drives and operating system drives. Computers that do not have a fixed data drive are included and show a value only in the Operating System Drive bar. The chart does not include users who have been granted an exemption from the BitLocker drive encryption policy or the “No Policy” category.
