Distribute RM Templates based on groups of users or OU RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We're distributing templates to the users. However, since there are a lot of templates, is it possible to distribute them based on department, OU, or any other way, so users can see only templates they need.

    Thank you.

  • Hi alfa21,

    It is possible! First, you should know that there are several ways of RMS templates distribution: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/3911.how-to-deploy-ad-rms-policy-templates.aspx

    Now, do not enable the default RMS scheduled task, and use GPOs/scripts to copy .xml files (which are ADRMS templates of your choice) to %LocalAppData%\Microsoft\DRM\Templates for selected users/groups/OUs.

    If your clients are using ADRMS client 2.x then all templates are downloaded automatically (even if you didn't enable scheduled task) BUT you can force AD RMS Client 2.x to use templates of your choice and do not download any other templates. Please find"How can I manage template distribution for the AD RMS Client 2.x?" section in this article: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj159267(v=ws.10).aspx. Also notice, that templates path would be different (%localappdata%\Microsoft\MSIPC\UnmanagedTemplates) for this ADRMS client.

  • The only way to do this currently is by having multiple license only servers with different templates configured.

    You would then have to create policies for those users to redirect the license requests to the correct server.

    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Common\DRM\LicenseServerRedirection
          REG_SZ:  http://url.to.old.licensing.server/_wmcs/licensing
          Value: http://url.to.new.licensing.server/_wmcs/licensing
