The database server hosts the directory services database, which contains information about users, identifiers (such as e-mail addresses), security ID (SID), group membership, and alternate identifiers. This information is obtained from LDAP queries that are made to the Active Directory global catalog by the RMS Licensing service. For more information about this process and its purpose, see "RMS Active Directory Cache" later in this subject.

The RMS service group has Execute permissions on the stored procedures that are in the directory services database.
