Use these instructions to install and enable an HPE TPM 2.0 Gen10 Kit in a supported server. This option is not supported on a Gen9 and earlier server.

This procedure includes three sections:
  1. Installing the Trusted Platform Module board.

  2. Enabling the Trusted Platform Module.

  3. Retaining the recovery key/password.

HPE TPM 2.0 installation is supported with specific operating system support such as Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 and later. For more information about operating system support, see the product QuickSpecs on the Hewlett Packard Enterprise website (https://www.hpe.com/info/qs). For more information about Microsoft Windows BitLocker Drive Encryption feature, see the Microsoft website (https://www.microsoft.com).

CAUTION: If the TPM is removed from the original server and powered up on a different server, data stored in the TPM including keys will be erased.
IMPORTANT: In UEFI Boot Mode, the HPE TPM 2.0 Gen10 Kit can be configured to operate as TPM 2.0 (default) or TPM 1.2 on a supported server. In Legacy Boot Mode, the configuration can be changed between TPM 1.2 and TPM 2.0, but only TPM 1.2 operation is supported.
