BitLocker encrypting commands for Fixed drives (non OS)

To encrypt manually Non OS - Fixed drive, in our case D: partition, these two command should be used:

manage-bde –on D: -RecoveryPassword

manage-bde –autounlock –enable D:

First command starts  encryption of D: partition and write Recovery password in AD.
Second command enables autounlock of D: partition. 
There is no need to wait encryption to finish to execute the second command.

To write Recovery password in AD requirement is to have GPO for BitLocker configured.
