Add AD RMS administrator account to local Administrators group

AD RMS installation requires that the AD RMS administrator account (the user account installing AD RMS) be a member of the local Administrators group on the AD RMS server. If the AD RMS administrator account is not a member of the Administrators group, the AD RMS installation will fail. You should add the AD RMS administrator account to the local Administrators group and then install AD RMS again. Use the "Add the AD RMS administrator account to the local Administrators group" procedure to add the AD RMS administrator account to the local Administrators group. Then use the "Install the AD RMS role by using Server Manager" 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.

  1. Log on to the computer that will have AD RMS installed on it.
  2. Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Computer Management.
  3. Expand System Tools, and then expand Local Users and Groups.
  4. Click Groups.
  5. Right-click Administrators, and then click Add to Group.
  6. Click Add.
