Revocation authority information is not valid

During AD RMS installation, you can specify a revocation list to be used to revoke the server licensor certificate, if needed. Open the revocation list and make sure that the keys in it are valid. For more information about AD RMS revocation lists, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=85418.


To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the local Users group, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.

Note: Microsoft Office Word 2007 is used as an example in this section. Any AD RMS-enabled application can be used in place of Word 2007.

To verify that AD RMS is configured correctly, do the following:

  1. Log on to an AD RMS-enabled client computer.
  2. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Microsoft Office, and then click Microsoft Office Word 2007.
  3. In the new document type This is a test document.
  4. Click the Microsoft Office Start Button, point to Prepare, point to Restrict Permissions, and then click Restricted Access.
  5. Select the Restrict permissions to this document check box.
  6. Type another AD RMS user's e-mail address in the Read box, and then click OK.
  7. Send this file to the person who was granted access in step 6.
  8. Have this person open the document and verify that he or she cannot do anything else with the document such as print it.
