SCP - RMS Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I'm having the same issue. I installed RMS a year ago and left it without completing. When I try to rework on this I get the below error.

    "The SCP is registered but the root cluster cannot be contacted. You can still join an existing cluster. The request failed with HTTP status 404: Not Found"

    I'm new to the AD server and have less knowledge in ADSI Edit. 

    Please guide with step by step instruction.

    Thank you.

    Best regards,

  • Hey Sujith,

    I would suggest you to first try the RMS SP2 Administration Toolkit before making changes in the ADSIEDIT.

    1. Download RMS SP2 Administration Toolkit (

    2. Use GetRMScp tool to check if SCP has already been registered.

    3. Use ADScpRegister tool to unregister/register SCP as follows:

    At a command prompt type the following command: ADSCPRegister.exe Registerscp / UnregisterScp <URL>

    You would get the url when u run the GETRMScp.exe 

    Depending on what you want to achieve you could either specify "RegisterSCP" or "UnregisterSCP".
