Firmware, BIOS and Bitlocker

So trying to install various firmware and BIOS updates on a Server 2012 R610.

Bitlocker is enabled.

Suspend Bitlocker, try to run installs and they still complain that Bitlocker is enabled.

The only work around for this I've seen involves messing around with a Linux DVD! I really don't have the inclination to wander around a bunch of servers with a DVD.

Tried the installs manually and via OME 1.2

So, obvious question, why don't the installers recognise that Bitlocker has been suspended and when will this be fixed?

RE: Firmware, BIOS and Bitlocker

Fixed it. Bitlocker needs disabling on all drives and the GUI doesn't give you the option to suspend on non-OS drives.

Had to use the manage-BDE command line on each drive.
