Applies To: Windows Server 2012
Windows Server® 2008 R2 with Service Pack 1 (SP1) must be installed on every server in your Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS) cluster before you can add Microsoft Federation Gateway Support to the servers in your cluster.
Membership in the AD RMS Enterprise Administrators and the local Administrators group, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete this procedure.
|Before adding Microsoft Federation Gateway Support, back up the AD RMS configuration database.|
To add Microsoft Federation Gateway Support
Log on to a server in the AD RMS cluster.
Open the Active Directory Rights Management Services console and expand the AD RMS cluster.
In the console tree, click Trust Policies , and then in the Actions pane, click Add Microsoft Federation Gateway Support .
When the Microsoft Federation Gateway wizard appears, click Next .
Click Finish .
Repeat steps 1-5 on all other servers in the AD RMS cluster.
|Before uninstalling Service Pack 1 for Windows Server® 2008 R2, you must remove Microsoft Federation Gateway Support from the AD RMS cluster. Failure to do this may cause an inconsistent configuration of your AD RMS cluster. For more information, see Remove Microsoft Federation Gateway Support.|
You can also perform the task described in this procedure by using Windows PowerShell. For more information about Windows PowerShell for AD RMS, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=136806.
