AD RMS Deployment

Updated: December 3, 2008

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS) deployment is the process by which AD RMS is installed and configured in an organization's network.

Aspects

The following is a list of all aspects that are part of this managed entity:

Name Description

AD RMS Cluster Installation

Installing the Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS) server role is done by using Server Manager. An AD RMS cluster can be a single-server AD RMS installation or several AD RMS servers installed in a load-balancing environment to handle requests from AD RMS-enabled clients.

AD RMS Cluster URL Availability

Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS) uses a cluster URL that all AD RMS clients use to publish and consume rights-protected content. After a successful AD RMS installation, the cluster URL is contacted to ensure its availability on the network.

AD RMS Federated Identity Support Installation

Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS) federated identity support is offered as a role service and is configured by using Server Manager. The Federated Identity Support role service is used with Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) and allows organizations to share rights-protected content by using an AD FS federated trust.

AD RMS Service Connection Point Registration

Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS) clients use a service connection point (SCP) to automatically discover the AD RMS cluster.
