Cause Common reasons for this are:
Only the following BitLocker group policies (GPOs) should be configured if BitLocker is managed by SGN:
Ensure that no BitLocker group policy settings are configured that interfere with the settings defined in the SafeGuard policies. Otherwise they might be overruled by SafeGuard policies or even lead to conflicts with the SafeGuard BitLocker management.
Example: Activating the group policy setting "Do not enable Bitlocker until recovery information is stored to AD for operating system drives" leads to encryption failing to start if you are using SafeGuard BitLocker Challenge/Response.
