BitLocker on Servers

What are your thoughts on running BitLocker on servers? We run it fine on desktops but on rare occasions, the user has had to enter their recovery key. I see a lot of mixed opinions on this topic, so was curious what fellow MSPs are doing.

Not on C:, but we do run BitLocker on data volumes of a server.
PITA when the server is rebooted.

Do you have to manually unlock the drives or did you set it to auto unlock?

Yes, we manually unlock.
During my investigations, I did see reference to auto unlock via a virtual floppy but I felt that defeated the entire purpose of using Bitlocker in a VM to protect the data if the hardware was stolen (The bad guys would have the virtual floppy and could then unlock too).
