To Set up a Super Users Group

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

To perform this procedure, you must be logged on locally to the administration Web site with a domain user account that is a member of the Administrators group. As a security best practice, consider using Run as to perform this procedure.

Before it can be designated as the super users group for RMS, a security group must exist in Active Directory and the properties of that group must include an e-mail address (specified as a fully qualified domain name) that is the same as the account name. If you are using a RMS deployment that extends across one or more Active Directory forests, you must use an Active Directory Universal group so that group membership is replicated to all global catalog servers.
