Check the ClusterType value in configuration database

During AD RMS installation a configuration database is created that stores information about the AD RMS cluster, including whether or not the cluster is a root or licensing-only cluster. If the value is not either certification or licensing, the AD RMS server cannot be added to the cluster. You should ensure that the cluster type stored in the AD RMS configuration database is valid and then install the AD RMS role again.

Check the ClusterType value in AD RMS configuration database

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

To check the ClusterType value in AD RMS configuration database:

  1. Log on to the AD RMS configuration database server.
  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 AD RMS configuration database server, 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 = 'ClusterType', and then click Execute.
  7. If the result in the PolicyData column is not Certification or Licensing, new AD RMS servers cannot be joined to this cluster.
  8. Restore a previous version of the AD RMS configuration database that has the correct value in the PolicyData column of the ClusterType row.

Restore AD RMS configuration database from previous backup

To restore AD RMS configuration database from previous backup:

  1. Log on to the server that is hosting the AD RMS configuration database, click Start, point to All Programs, click Microsoft SQL Server 2005, and then click SQL Server Management Studio.
  2. In the Server name box, type the name of the AD RMS configuration database server, and then click Connect.
  3. Right-click Databases, and then click Restore Database.
  4. In the To database box, select the AD RMS configuration database from the list.
  5. Click the From device option, and then click the browse button.
  6. Click Add.
  7. In the Locate Backup File window, select the database backup file, and then click OK two times.
  8. Select the Restore check box, and then click OK.
