Is it advisable to use the same or different AD RMS intranet vs extranet URLs?

thank you for posting here.
The idea behind having external and internal URLs is that a organization may want use different URLs. e.g. rms.domain.com from external and rms.myorg.local from internal. In reality I chose always a valid global name space, e.g. rms.domain.com and go with only one. Also some 3rd party RMS applications had issues with using the external URL, they just ignored it and used the internal URL only.

How does a RMS-enabled application know which of the URL's to use?
In other words, what is the "internal/external detection method"?
Is it simply fallback (if I can't reach the internal I'll try the external) or is it more sophisticated?

Hi Tom, yes it is just a fallback. Some 3rd party clients have/had issues with the external URLs. So they honore only the internal URL. I do not use the externally URL at all, just split DNS.
