Has anyone been able to enable bitlocker on a drive within Server 2019 or 2022? Or is there an update regarding this article? Bitlocker cannot be enabled on Windows Server 2019 in VM running on AHV (nutanix.com)

@EricUMD Nutanix and Microsoft teams conducted the joint investigation of the issue and the Microsoft engineering team has acknowledged that the issue is on Windows/BitLocker side. Microsoft is working on a fix and evaluating the possibility to backport this fix to currently supported OSes.

In case anyone encounters this in the future, Microsoft released a fix for this issue on Nov 2021 (kb5007266).   In fact this is mentioned on the updated version of the document @EricUMD linked to.

In short, if you update your 2019 server and bring it up to date, you will be able to enable BitLocker.

Worked for me.
