We did a POC for Sophos Safeguard encryption which use to be Utimaco and we didnt have any issues with New Imaging or Reimaging. We actually used LANDesk to deploy the encryption software and launch the encryption process.
LANDesk is partnering with Credant for Disk Encrption so I'm sure that won't have any effects on imaging as well. I am looking forward to see it.
But I guess to answer your question depends on how you are encrypting the drive. We encrypt the drives after they are imaged, if you get drives already encrypted I could imagine a different scenario as doing a New image on the hard drive would most likely wipe out the MBR and other components that are encrypting the drive
I have same requirement where OS need to be deployed on the encrypted drive. Based on your explanation that is possible to be performed by LDMS right?
Please do let me know if anyone had done this before. thanks
Deploying an image on an encrypted drive may cause some issues. Your imaging utility would not know where to put the files as the drives would be unreadable and un-writable. We normally image the machines un-encrypted and then launch the encryption software once in windows.
