Case Study: Post-BitLocker TPM Installation in HP Proliant
This server was deployed during a period of non-availability of the TPM component (864279-B21) and thus Bitlocker was configured to use a startup password. (To reboot the machine, Bitlocker was suspended prior to rebooting or the password was entered via the remote terminal interface of the server's iLO.)
Once the TPM component was available, it could be installed easily (but carefully) by simply removing the cover. The TPM has notches which line up in a particular way.
When the server is restarted, iLO issues some alerts:
The server restarts and Windows is able to detect the TPM.
To reconfigure Bitlocker to use the TPM as a key protector requires some manual commands as this is not available through the GUI.
A reboot is not required.
