Notes

  • Before adding Microsoft Federation Gateway Support, it is very important that you back up the AD RMS configuration database.
  • Do not run this command if the AD RMS snap-in is open in the Microsoft Management Console (MMC). If you do, the command will not respond until you close the AD RMS MMC snap-in.
  • Before uninstalling Service Pack 1 for Windows® 7, you must remove Microsoft Federation Gateway Support from the AD RMS cluster by running the Uninstall-RmsMfgSupport cmdlet. Failure to do so may cause an inconsistent configuration of your AD RMS cluster.
