Enabling the Trusted Platform Module

  1. From the System Utilities screen, select System Configuration > BIOS/Platform Configuration (RBSU) > Server Security > Trusted Platform Module options and press Enter.
  2. Select an option and press Enter, then select a setting for that option and press Enter again.
    1. For TPM 2.0 Operation, select Enabled to enable TPM functionality.
    2. For TPM 2.0 Visibility, select Visible to make TPM visible to the operating system.
    3. Leave the following settings at their default values.
      • TPM 2.0 Physical Presence Confirmation—Sets whether you are prompted during the next boot after the OS initiates a TPM 2.O operation request. When enabled, prompts for confirmation during POST. Disabled does not prompt.

      • TPM Binding—Sets whether data is encrypted using a TPM bind key, a unique RSA key. Default is Disabled.
      • TPM UEFI Option ROM Measurement—Enables or disables (skips) measuring UEFI PCI operation ROMs. Default is Enabled.
  3. Verify that your new Current TPM Type and Current TPM State settings appear at the top of the screen.
  4. Press F10.
  5. Save your changes and reboot.

TPM is enabled and you can now enable TPM functionality in the OS, such as Microsoft Windows BitLocker or measured boot.
