RMS Configuration Database
Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2
RMS uses a database server, such as Microsoft® SQL Server 2000, Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine (MSDE 2000) Release A, Microsoft SQL Server 2005, or Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition to store its configuration and policy information. There is one configuration database for each RMS cluster; this database stores, shares, and retrieves configuration data and other data.
The configuration database for the root cluster contains a list of Windows user identities and their rights account certificates. The certificate key pair is encrypted to the RMS server public key before it is stored in the database. The configuration databases for licensing-only clusters do not contain this information.
The RMS Service Group has Execute permissions on the database's stored procedures.
