Updates an existing deployment of rms_2 Server.

Syntax

Update-ADRMS
      [-ServiceAccount] <PSCredential>
      [[-PrivateKeyPassword] <SecureString>]
      [[-NewCspName] <String>]
      [-UpdateCryptographicModeOnly]
      [-Credential <PSCredential>]
      [-Force]
      [-WhatIf]
      [-Confirm]
      [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Update-ADRMS cmdlet updates the Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS) server role on a server that has been upgraded to this version of Windows. The cmdlet can also be used to update the rms_2 cryptographic mode on a server.

Examples

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 1 --------------------------

C:\PS>$mySecureStringPassword = ConvertTo-SecureString -String <password> -AsPlainText -Force
$myCred = Get-Credential
Update-ADRMS -PrivateKeyPassword $mySecureStringPassword -ServiceAccount $myCred

Description


Upgrades an rms_2 server and cluster that is using a cluster key password. The password must be specified securely as console input. The Get-Credential cmdlet will launch a popup dialog to enter the rms_2 Service Account credentials (username and password) that are also required to upgrade rms_2.

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 2 --------------------------

C:\PS>$myCred = Get-Credential
Update-ADRMS -UpdateCryptographicModeOnly -ServiceAccount $myCred

Description


Updates an rms_2 server that is using a cluster key password to cryptographic mode 2. The Get-Credential command will launch a popup dialog to enter the rms_2 Service Account credentials (username and password) which are required for this update. The cluster key password is not required; but if the server is using CSP key storage, the -NewCspName parameter must be included.

Required Parameters

-ServiceAccount

Specifies the identity of the domain account that is used for the rms_2 service account.

Type:PSCredential
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:cf
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Credential

Specifies user credentials to use for the update process. If this parameter is specified, you will be prompted to enter credentials. This parameter operates in a similar manner to the RunAs command.

Type:PSCredential
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Force

Forces completion of the command by overriding restrictions that would prevent it from succeeding (so long as a the changes made do not compromise security).

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:3
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-NewCspName

Specifies the new name of the cryptographic service provider (CSP) to use for storing the private key of the rms_2 server. This parameter is used in combination with the -UpdateCryptographicMode parameter for rms_2 servers that are using CSP key storage.

Type:String
Position:2
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-PrivateKeyPassword

Specifies the password for the AD RMS centrally managed key.

Type:SecureString
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-UpdateCryptographicModeOnly

If set, indicates that only the cryptographic mode of the server is to be updated. To update the cryptographic mode of an rms_2 server, you must be logged in with an account that has membership in the local rms_2 Enterprise Administrators Group on that server. If the rms_2 server is using CSP key storage, the -NewCspName parameter should also be specified.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-WhatIf

Shows what would happen if the cmdlet runs. The cmdlet is not run.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:wi
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

Inputs

SwitchParameter, string, PSCredential, SecureString
