Bitlocker command line switches - am I doing something wrong?
I'm using the command 'manage-bde -on C: -RecoveryPassword xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx' to set specific bitlocker passwords on some computers. This successful sets it to the password I provide. I was also trying the command 'manage-bde -ChangePassword C:' but it is complaining about no password key protectors on the C drive.
When I run 'manage-bde -protectors -add C: -recoverypassword xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx' with my specified password it says that the protectors have been added. When I run 'manage-bde -ChangePassword C:' again it still says there are no key protectors on C: drive. Anyone any ideas as to what's happening or not happening, or what else I may need to run?

Are these x64 machines? if so try running %windir%\sysnative\Manage-BDE.exe
