Description

All help updates correctly -- except the help for BitLocker due to an incorrect url...?

HelpInfoUri key in the module manifest must resolve to a container or root URL on a website where the help files are

I'm now getting this message for a wider range of modules:

update-help : Failed to update Help for the module(s) 'DFSN, DnsServer, OIMCmdlets, OPECmdlets, RemoteDesktop,
WindowsServerBackup, WssCmdlets' with UI culture(s) {en-US} : The value of the HelpInfoUri key in the module manifest
must resolve to a container or root URL on a website where the help files are stored. The HelpInfoUri
'http://technet.microsoft.com/library/cc732148.aspx' does not resolve to a container.

Thanks for the feedback, Timothy. The errors appear because we haven't yet released Updatable Help for the Bitlocker module. We hope to do so soon.

You can track the release of Updatable Help for Windows modules on the Updatable Help Status Table at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=270007.
