Before you create the AD RMS licensing-only cluster, you need to configure and add two servers to the infrastructure of the CPANDL domain. In this step, you will perform the following tasks:

This step assumes that you have completed the Windows Server Active Directory Rights Management Services Step-by-Step Guide (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=72134).

Use the following table as a reference when setting up the appropriate computer names, operating systems, and network settings that are required to complete the steps in this guide.

ImportantImportant
Before you configure your computers with static Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, we recommend that you first complete Windows product activation while each of your computers still has Internet connectivity. You should also install any available critical security updates from Windows Update (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=47290).
