After you create a Windows PowerShell drive and set properties on containers in the drive namespace, the final step in using Windows PowerShell cmdlets to add a server to an existing Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS) cluster is to run the Install-ADRMS cmdlet.

The Install-ADRMS cmdlet performs two principal functions:

  • It installs any prerequisite features or services that are not yet installed on the server.

  • It installs the AD RMS server role with the configuration settings represented by the properties set on containers in the drive namespace.

  • At the Windows PowerShell command prompt, type:

    Set-Location  <drive> :\

    Install-ADRMS -Path .

    where <drive> is the name of the Windows PowerShell drive.

You must set the current location to the root of the Windows PowerShell drive before running the Install-AD RMS cmdlet. The path supplied with the Path parameter must be the same as the current location.
