Changing the Intranet Licensing URL

Updated: October 22, 2009

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008 R2 with SP1

The intranet licensing URL is used by Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS) clients that are connected to your organization's private network to connect to licensing services in the AD RMS cluster.

Membership in the local AD RMS Enterprise Administrators, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete this procedure.

To change the intranet licensing URL

  • At the Windows PowerShell prompt, type:

    Set-ItemProperty -Path<drive>:\ -Property IntranetLicensingURL -Value<URL>

    where <drive> is the name of the Windows PowerShell drive and <URL> is the new intranet licensing URL.

For example, if you have created a Windows PowerShell drive named Z:, to set the intranet licensing URL to a secure sockets layer (SSL) URL for a server named, type:

Set-ItemProperty -Path Z:\ -Name IntranetLicensingURL -Value
