Delete AD RMS virtual root directories

AD RMS uses an Internet Information Services (IIS) virtual directory, named _wmcs, to host all AD RMS Web services. The AD RMS administrator account (the user account installing AD RMS) must have read, write, and delete access to this virtual directory, and the files in this virtual directory must not be in use. If the AD RMS administrator account does not have the appropriate access to the AD RMS virtual directory or the directory is in use, the installation will fail. You must delete the AD RMS virtual directory and install AD RMS again. Use the "Delete the AD RMS virtual root directories" procedure to delete the AD RMS virtual roots. Once this is done, use the "Install the AD RMS role by using Server Manager" procedure to install AD RMS again.

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

Delete the AD RMS virtual root directories

To delete the AD RMS virtual root directories:

  1. At a command prompt on the AD RMS server, type iisreset.
  2. Click Start, and then click Computer.
  3. Navigate to directory where the AD RMS virtual directory is located. By default, the path is %systemdrive%:\inetpub\wwwroot, where %systemdrive% is the partition on which Windows is installed.
  4. Right-click _wmcs, and then click Delete.
  5. Click Yes to confirm the deletion.

Install the AD RMS role by using Server Manager

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.

  1. Log on to a server in the AD RMS cluster.
