RMS for Office for Mac 2011 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

     

    I'm planning on implementing RMS in a mixed Windows/Mac environment.

    I have read that RMS only works with Office for Mac 2011 volume licenses and not retail licenses.

    Q1. Why?

    Q2. Can I upgrade my retail licenses to volume licenses?

  • Hi,

    Thanks for highlighting this.

    To clarify, as per documentation ...  "Office for Mac 2011 Volume License copies are required to apply IRM protection to files.
    Office for Mac Home and Business 2011, Office for Mac Home and Student 2011, and Office for Mac Academic 2011 can only read files protected with IRM. " Ref Link

    So all versions are effectively IRM enabled.

    About upgrading the retail licenses to volume licenses, don't believe it's possible, but have a chat with the distributor or a licensing advisor to provide you with more accurate answer.
