  • Question

  • I am trying to protect a PDF document using AD RMS however it is failing.

    When I check the properties of the PDF document , I could see the following -

    Security Method :  Password Security   ( comment : however no password is set)

    Can be Opened by : Acrobat 5.0 and later

    Printing : Allowed 

    Document Assembly : Not allowed 

    Content Copying : Not allowed 

    Content Copying of Accessibility :  Not Allowed 

    And here is another with same issue , with properties -

    Security Method :  Password Security   ( comment : however no password is set)

    Can be Opened by : Acrobat 5.0 and later

    Printing : NOT Allowed 

    Document Assembly : Not allowed 

    Content Copying : allowed 

    Content Copying of Accessibility :  Allowed 

    What could be the issue ?

  • Thanks for the reply Santhosh. 

    The solution I am using is being used for couple of years. It has protected thousands of pdf files and word files. However last month we came across two pdf files which are giving error. 

    I tried to protect the same documents with AIP software and same error response. 

    Hence I checked the security attributes of the document.  which are given in the problem statement.   I strongly believe it has something to do with some property or security feature of the document.
