Applies To: Microsoft BitLocker Administration and Monitoring 2.0
In addition to the server-related Microsoft BitLocker Administration and Monitoring (MBAM) features, the server setup application includes an Microsoft BitLocker Administration and Monitoring Group Policy template. This template can be installed on any computer capable of running the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) or Advanced Group Policy Management (AGPM).
The following steps describe how to install the MBAM Group Policy template.
|Make sure that you use the 32-bit setup on 32-bit servers and the 64-bit setup on 64-bit servers.|
To install the MBAM Group Policy template
On the server where you want to install MBAM, run MBAMSetup.exe to start the MBAM installation wizard.
On the Welcome page, optionally select the Customer Experience Improvement Program, and then click Start.
Read and accept the Microsoft Software License Terms, and then click Next to continue the installation.
By default, all Microsoft BitLocker Administration and Monitoring features are selected for installation. Clear all feature options except for Policy Template, and then click Next to continue the installation.
Note The installation wizard checks the prerequisites for your installation and displays prerequisites that are missing. If all the prerequisites are met, the installation continues. If a missing prerequisite is detected, you have to resolve the missing prerequisites, and then click Check prerequisites again. Once all prerequisites are met, the installation will resume.
For specific steps about how and where to install the templates, see How to Download and Deploy MDOP Group Policy (.admx) Templates.
After the Microsoft BitLocker Administration and Monitoring Setup wizard displays installation pages for the selected features, click Finish to close MBAM Setup.
