Remove Web Server (IIS) role and install the AD RMS role

AD RMS uses Internet Information Services (IIS) for communicating with the AD RMS-enabled clients. When you install AD RMS, the required components of the Web Server (IIS) role are automatically installed. If any required component cannot be installed, the AD RMS installation will not succeed.

Use the "Remove the Web server (IIS) role" procedure to remove the Web server role.

Use the "Install the AD RMS role by using Server Manager" procedure to install AD RMS again.

Note: In a production environment, AD RMS should be the only application running on the AD RMS servers in the cluster. If the Web server role on the AD RMS servers are used for applications other than AD RMS, you should make sure that the Web server role can be removed from this computer.

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

Remove the Web server (IIS) role

To remove the Web server (IIS) role:

Note: Because all configuration information is stored in the AD RMS configuration database, a backup of the Web server is not required before uninstalling. However, if you have made any changes above and beyond the default configuration, a backup is recommended.

  1. Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Server Manager.
  2. In the Roles Summary section, click Remove Roles, and then click Next.
  3. Clear the Web Server (IIS) check box, and then click Next.
  4. Click Remove.

Install the AD RMS role by using Server Manager

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.
