My name is Himanshu Singh and I am a Support Escalation Engineer with Windows Core Team at Microsoft. I am writing today to provide a solution to a particular problem many of you have faced with Microsoft Bitlocker Administration and Monitoring (MBAM) version 1.0.
There have been situation where you as a MBAM Admin had to delete the entries of older machine records from the MBAM database. The only solution in this case is to either run SQL queries to delete machines from the database or manually cleaning the MBAM database.
We have now made available a public version of a tool called MBAM Compliance Data Cleanup Tool, aka MBAMCDCT.
This tool provides a way to delete machine records from the MBAM Compliance Status Database. This tool will help delete the old records of the machines from the database which are re-imaged or no longer reporting into the database.
This tool provides two options to delete machine records from the MBAM Compliance Status database:
1. Delete machines which have not reported in last X days.
2. Delete machines specified in a list.
This tool does not delete the recovery information or any other data from MBAM Recovery and Hardware Database. All delete operations are performed strictly on the MBAM Compliance Status Database.
The tool is available for download at http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/MBAM-Compliance-Data-5ba28187 and is bundled as a self-extractable compressed file, which includes the executable and documentation for your reference.
Hope this tool helps you report the true state of encryption compliance in your environment by deleting the obsolete information from the database.

Bit locker is very much required........
I have been looking for something like this, thanks for taking the time to create it. We will be testing it
It does not appear as though this tool works with MBAM 2.0 when using the Machine Name method. The number of days option appears to have worked though. I never used it in MBAM 1.0, perhaps I will clean up MBAM 1.0 prior to upgrading. Thanks for putting this out there.
I hope you are specifying FQDN of the machine i.e. machine.domain.com during deletion. Also, note that you need to specify one machine name per line. Refer to the attached documentation.
Does the tool work with MBAM 2.0?
We have made available version 2.0 of this tool which is compatible with version 2.0.
Does the 2.0 version work with MBAM 2.5?
