Applies To: Windows SharePoint Services 3.0


Topic Last Modified: 2007-09-27


Specifies that Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 should use the location of the RMS server that is stored in Active Directory, rather than an administrator manually specifying the location of the Windows RMS.

This property is equivalent to the Use the default RMS server specified in Active Directory user interface setting that is located on the Information Rights Management page of the SharePoint Central Administration Web site.


stsadm -o setproperty

-propertyname irmrmsusead

-propertyvalue {True | False}

**\[-url\]** \<http://server\_name\>

The syntax for the getproperty operation is:

stsadm -o getproperty

propertyname irmrmsusead

**\[-url\]** \<http://server\_name\>


You can substitute -pn for -propertyname and -pv for -propertyvalue.
