When replacing an expansion board on a BitLockerâ„¢-encrypted server, always disable BitLockerâ„¢ before replacing the expansion board. If BitLockerâ„¢ is not disabled, the system requests the recovery method selected when BitLockerâ„¢ was configured. Failure to provide the correct recovery password or passwords results in loss of access to all encrypted data.
Be sure to enable BitLockerâ„¢ after the installation is complete.
For information on BitLockerâ„¢, see BitLockerâ„¢ for Servers on the Microsoft website.
