Enable BitLocker task fails with error 80070057 in Configuration Manager

Applies to: System Center Configuration Manager (current branch - version 1806)


After you upgrade to Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager current branch, version 1806, the Enable BitLocker task fails, and you receive the following error message in the Smsts.log file:


This issue is caused by an update in Configuration Manager current branch, version 1806. The Enable BitLocker and Pre-Provision BitLocker actions require newer versions of OSDBitLocker.exe and OSDOfflineBitlocker.exe that are included in boot image version 5.00.8592.1008 and the Configuration Manager, version 1806 client package.


To fix this issue, update the boot image to version 5.00.8592.1008, and use the Configuration Manager, version 1806 client package in the task sequence.
