RMS connection to Exchange with Enterprise Mobility Suite subscription. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello!

    I have RMS with Enterprise Mobility Suite subscription. And I need to connect RMS to Exchange that encrypts specific e-mails. Do I need another subscription(like ECAL) to do this configuration with RMS? Or will it works with this Enterprice Mobility Suite subscription?

  • Sorry it took a while to get an answer - it seems that this is an Exchange licensing question that isn't included in EMS.  The way this was explained to me was yes, you need an Exchange Enterprise CAL to configure Exchange DLP, which includes the option to select an RMS template.

    Additionally, you need an RMS license (which EMS covers) to communicate with the RMS service, which supports not just Exchange but also SharePoint, Office apps, etc.

  • Thanks,

    We also found out from our local Microsoft representatives, that Exchange Enterprise CAL is necessary only for users which are affected by transport rule. This is not all or nothing requirement.

  • Here's your go-to page for what's supported with the different subscriptions: Comparison of Rights Management Services (RMS) Offerings

    You'll see from this that EMS supports your Exchange scenario:

    • Integrates with Exchange Server 2013/Exchange Server 2010 and SharePoint Server 2013/SharePoint Server 2010 on-premises via the RMS connector

  • So the question here was following:

    1) We are configuring RMS Connector with Exchange;

    2) But when we create a transport rule in Exchange 2013 it says that "To use RMS protection You must have Exchange Enterprise CAL".

     

    If we have purchased Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS), do we still need Exchange Enterprise CAL to use automatic email protection?

  • Hi,

    Does anybody have the information? This is important question as we don't have Enterprise CALs ...
