Don't run it but if it is like other ones it has a service you can query for http://www.blackviper.com/Windows_7/Services/BitLocker_Drive_Encryption_Service.htm
OS | Drivers and Services | Service. Should be pretty easy to find if it is running.
Actually, it doesn't list itself in the Services in that location, but I did finally locate it under OS>Drivers and Services>Kernel Driver>BitLocker Drive Encryption Filter Driver and it has a status of "Running". Is this a true representation of a machine that is actually using Bitlocker for drive encryption?.
I'm told and have read that the only way to accurately find Bitlocker running is to query the Win32_EncryptableVolume Namespace in WMI, which I can't figure out how to do with a typical LANDesk query. I thought LANDesk leveraged WMI, DMI, etc to pull it's inventory info, but I can't find a specific document that tells me this, so I may be assuming something.
Has anyone found out how to do this? As we get close to our rollout of Windows 7 we're pretty interested in being able to report on the Bitlocker usage. It seems that Microsoft doesn't give you a way to cleanly disable the ability to turn on Bitlocker, so we are trying to find a solution to report on those who have enabled it.
We want to wait until we're ready to rollout Bitlocker before enabling it for our users
If you are using multiple encryptions... or you are moving to a new one, and you are doing queries for who is encrypted. etc.
All windows 7 will respond to the queries listed above, it is easier / more accurate to do a check to see if the bitlocker service is running.
"Computer"."OS"."Drivers and Services"."Service"."Status" = "Running"
"Computer"."OS"."Drivers and Services"."Service"."Name" = "BitLocker Drive Encryption Service"
< That did it for me.
