Distributing Rights Policy Templates

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

Rights policy templates must be distributed to the RMS client computers so they are still available in case the client computer is not connected to the organizational network. Rights policy templates can be distributed to users on RMS client computers from the shared folder where they are stored by using a method such as a script, Group Policy, or Systems Management Server (SMS).

If a template is migrated onto this RMS server from another RMS server, the template must be signed by this server and then redistributed to the RMS clients before it can be used. For more information, see “To Re-sign a Rights Policy Template” later in this subject.

For more detailed information on distributing rights policy templates in your organization, see "To Specify the Location of Rights Policy Templates" later in this subject.
