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

The Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS) Windows PowerShell deployment Windows PowerShell module gives you the ability to install, upgrade, or remove an AD RMS cluster by using Windows PowerShell cmdlets. The following describes these cmdlets.

  • Install-ADRMS
    This cmdlet installs the Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS) server role and, if necessary, any features required by AD RMS. Before running this cmdlet, prepare the server by setting properties on containers in the deployment provider namespace. You can also use this cmdlet to install federated identity support on an existing cluster.
  • Uninstall-ADRMS
    This cmdlet removes the AD RMS server role. You can also use this cmdlet to remove identity federation support from a cluster.
  • Update-ADRMS
    This cmdlet upgrades the AD RMS server role following an upgrade of the operating system to Windows Server® 2008 R2. You can use the WhatIf parameter to view the actions that would be taken by the cmdlet without changing the system.
