    Bitlocker iscsi drive can't unlock


    I recently connected an iscsi drive to my asus tablet. I was not aware that bit locker was on. when I disconnected the drive I could not access it on my other pc. I reconnected it to the asus tablet and went to the system screen and turned off bitlocker. I got the screen saying that it was decrypting the drives and I thought all was fine. when all was done I rebooted the tablet and checked the drive. it only decrypted the system drive and tells me the iscsi drive is locked and wants a key. the system never told me it was locking it in the first place and never prompted me to create a key file. HELP!
