After you set up group policy which configured the desktop and laptop client (store in AD the recovery key, use tpm,…), I launched the script which enabled BitLocker on the system partition or opther partition. The bitlocker has been actived and partition has crypted, however the recovery key was not stored in the Active Directory.
