Using Remote Help to Unlock Full Disk Encryption Devices

  • Restarting the Endpoint Encryption device resets the challenge code.
  • Manually synchronizing policies with PolicyServer also resets the challenge code.

  • The challenge code and response code are not case sensitive.

  1. From the Full Disk Encryption preboot, go to Menu > Authentication > Remote Help.
  2. Provide the Challenge Code to the Policy/Group Administrator.
  3. Specify the Response Code provided by the Policy/Group Administrator.
  4. Click Login.

    The Change Password screen appears.


    If the account uses domain authentication, the endpoint boots directly into Windows.

  5. Specify and confirm new password, then click Next.

    The device boots into Windows.
