Check AD RMS cluster version

The version of the AD RMS cluster is stored in the configuration database. When joining a server to an AD RMS cluster, the version being installed on the AD RMS server must match the version of the AD RMS cluster. If the cluster version does not match, the AD RMS installation will fail. You should check the AD RMS cluster version against the version of AD RMS being installed and then add the AD RMS server role again.

Check the AD RMS cluster version

To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the System Administrators database server role, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.

To check the AD RMS cluster version:

  1. Log on to the server that is hosting the AD RMS configuration database.
  2. Click Start, point to All Programs, click Microsoft SQL Server 2005, and then click SQL Server Management Studio.
  3. In the Server name box, type the name of the server that is hosting the AD RMS configuration database, and then click Connect.
  4. Expand Databases, and then click the AD RMS configuration database. By default, the name of this database is DRMS_Config_clustername_portnumber, where clustername is the name of the AD RMS cluster and portnumber is the TCP port on which the AD RMS Web services listens for requests.
  5. Click New Query.
  6. Type select * from drms_clusterpolicies where policyname = 'DRMSAssemblyVersion', and then click Execute.
  7. In the results window, the value in the PolicyData column is the AD RMS cluster assembly version. Make sure that this value is the same as the version of AD RMS you are trying to install on the server you want to join to this cluster.

Install the AD RMS role by using Server Manager

To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the local Administrators group, or must have been delegated the appropriate authority.

To install the AD RMS role by using Server Manager:

  1. Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Server Manager.
  2. In the Roles Summary section, click Add Roles, and then click Next.
  3. Select the Active Directory Rights Management Services check box, and then click Next.
  4. Complete the appropriate information in the AD RMS role wizard setup.
  5. Click Install.
  6. When the installation is complete, click Close.

Verify

To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the local AD RMS Enterprise Administrators group, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.

To verify that the AD RMS cluster installation is working properly:

  1. Log on to a server in the AD RMS cluster.
  2. Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Active Directory Rights Management Services.
  3. Verify that the AD RMS cluster was added successfully by expanding the AD RMS cluster name.
