I would like to configure whole disk encryption on all of my Domain Controllers. Is BitLocker an acceptable method to do this? What are the potential problems with whole disk encryption on a Domain Controller?

According to the bitlocker menu in the Win8 control panel it says bitlocker is "waiting to be activated".
Per below article, this means it is pre-provisioned for encryption but "Microsoft calls the random encryption key a clear protector because it is stored on disk in an unprotected way" and needs to complete the encryption process.
Does this mean my disk is securely encrypted or not?
