Public Certificate and policy replication RRS feed

  • Question

  • Folks,

    I have two questions, first is about using Public Certificate, how this works? I have 5 RMS (one on each branch office) need I fill the URL using what address? Is there a guide to configure Public Certificates on ADRMS?

    And, when I create a new policy/template, I have some machines taking more then 2 hours to have this templates on the local list, is there a way to force this policy manually? I would like to have this replication in less time.

    Thank you,

  • Hi JRSCE,

    1/ ADRMS is using 2 pipelines: Internal Pipeline (accessed from LAN) and External Pipeline (accessed from Internet). Pipeline is an ADRMS URL, nothing less nothing more. You can have two different pipelines, example: Internal Pipeline https://adrms.mycompany.LOCAL/ and External https://adrms.mycompany.COM but of course you can have both pipelines configured with the same (publicly routable URLs). Now, ADRMS can have only one certificate installed for both pipelines so if you choose to have https://adrms.mycompany.LOCAL and https://adrms.mycompany.COM it means that in public certificate you have to have both names included - such certificate is SAN certificate. Of course, if you use the split brain scenario with a single URL (publicly routable) for both pipelines f.e. https://adrms.mycompany.com it is a single public certificate to be bought

    2/ Run task scheduler -> Microsoft / Windows / Active Directory Rights Management Service Client. Right click on the "AD RMS Rights Policy Template Management (Manual)" task and click Run. Also, consider downloading ADRMS 2.1 Client: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=38396 + read about templates distribution http://blogs.msdn.com/b/rms/archive/2013/08/26/office-2013-ad-rms-client-2-x-and-template-distribution.aspx
