8. We have an AOM-TPM-9665H-S module on system “SYS-6018R-MTR”. We are running Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard with all BitLocker associated roles/features installed. The OS is installed and booted in UEFI strict mode. The TPM is recognized in the BIOS and is fully recognized and installed within Windows Device Manger. The problem is that the TPM appears to be locked. And we do not get given the option to reset the TPM lockout period. If we go into TPM Management, it states the TPM is “Not ready for use” and suggests we should prepare it for use. Clicking “Prepare TPM” results in the TPM gets lockout on the system. Furthermore, we have never entered ANY “owner passwords” at all. We simply opened BitLocker and clicked the “Turn BitLocker On” button and it fails. Please advise. (04/14/2017)
