Archiving a Rights Policy Template
Updated: October 22, 2009
Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008 R2 with SP1
Archived templates are not exported to the template export location and are not distributed by the template distribution pipeline. After the client computers refresh their rights policy templates, the archived templates are no longer available to users for publishing new content. At the same time, archived templates allow the server to continue issuing use licenses for content already published against them.
Membership in the local AD RMS Template Administrators, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete this procedure.
To archive a rights policy template
At the Windows PowerShell command prompt, type:
where <drive> is the name of the Windows PowerShell drive. Note the ID of the rights policy template that you want to view.
-Name IsDistributed -Value $false
where <drive> is the name of the Windows PowerShell drive, and <template_ID> is the ID of the template you found in the preceding step.
Rather than typing out the entire rights policy template ID on the command line, you can type the first few characters and then press the TAB key. Windows PowerShell will then complete the ID for you.
