Each root and licensing-only cluster hosts an Administration Web site that you can use to manage RMS. This Web site is available only on the RMS server that you are administering or through a Remote Desktop connection.

This topic describes Administration Web site capabilities. Instructions for using the Web site to administer RMS are provided in "RMS How to..." and "Managing RMS" in "RMS: Operations" in this documentation collection.
