Exporting a Trusted User Domain

Updated: October 22, 2009

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

Trusted user domains (TUDs) enable an Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS) cluster to provide licenses to users whose rights account certificate (RAC) was granted by another server in an AD RMS cluster. Exporting a TUD and importing it into another AD RMS cluster allows the cluster to process requests for use licenses from users whose RACs are in a different cluster.

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

To export a trusted user domain

  • At the Windows PowerShell command prompt, type:

    Export-RmsTUD -Path <drive>:\TrustPolicy\TrustedUserDomain -SavedFile <file_path>

    where <drive> is the name of the Windows PowerShell drive, and <file_path> is the path of the file to receive the exported TUD certificate.
