Exporting Report Definition Language Files

Updated: October 22, 2009

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

You can use this procedure to export the SQL Server Report Definition Language (RDL) used by Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS) to a set of files. RDL provides interoperability of commercial reporting products by defining a common schema that allows interchange of report definitions.

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

To export SQL Server RDL files

  • At the Windows PowerShell command prompt, type:

    Export-RmsReportDefinitionLanguage -Path <drive>:\Report -ExportLocation <folder_path>

    where <drive> is the name of the Windows PowerShell drive, and <folder_path> is the path of a folder on a file-system drive, for example, c:\Users\Public.
