Simple AD RMS 2012 Installation fails RRS feed

  • Question

  • I create a single windows 2012 VM, keep the WIN-QEWOIU8R name, and add AD DS and AD RMS roles, as well as Windows Internal Database. I then create a SVCADRMS account and use the domain admin account to configure AD RMS. The installation immediately fails with a vague error "Invalid Configuration"

    Is there any way to do some deep troubleshooting?

  • Hi,

    I just did the same installation and had no issues.

    - Hyper-V 2012 VM

    - Windows installation from VHD (RC build 8400)

    - Assigned fixed IP, no gateway, DNS is 127.0.0.1

    - Installed AD and configured a new forest contoso.com

    - Created two users svcadrms (domain admin) and svcadrmsadmin (enterprise and schema admin, even I think schema admin is not necessary)

    - logon as svcadrmsadmin

    - Added the RMS role and configured all with default values

    - log off and log on and I could access the RMS MMC

    For troubleshooting check for log files in c:\windows\temp, %temp% and the eventlog

    Regards,

  • I had a similar problem (though it said 'Invalid credentials blah blah blah').  Saw this post and realized from the steps taken by LutzMH the issue is that the text of the AD RMS phase II wizard says to create a 'Domain User' account.  Now Domain User means something so I took it at face value. However it does not mention that the account should, in fact, be in the Domain Admins group as well. Bit of a difference.  May this comment will help someone else.
