To perform this procedure, you must be logged on locally to the administration Web site with a domain user account that is a member of the Administrators group. As a security best practice, consider using Run as to perform this procedure.

The administrator specified in this procedure should be a local administrator on a server in the root cluster because the logged-on user must have permissions on the SubEnrollService.asmx file on the root cluster to provision a server in a licensing-only cluster. In the event that the user attempting to provision a server in a licensing-only cluster does not have permissions on this file, the user can send a request to the administrator designated in this operation to grant the user account the necessary permissions. The administrator's e-mail address is the RMS administrative contact. For more information, see "Setting Permissions on the Subenrollment Service File" earlier in this subject.
