What is the RMS Lifecycle?

Ever wonder when support for *your* version of RMS will officially end?

Well we all know that RMS V1 /w no SP has already expired...*but* did you know that RMS V1 SP1 also has expired, and that you need to upgrade to SP2 to be in full support?


Windows Rights Management Services Service Pack 1 18-Apr-2005 13-Jan-2009
Windows Rights Management Services Service Pack 2 22-Nov-2006 Not Applicable
See Note
Support ends either 12 or 24 months after the next service pack releases or at the end of the product's support lifecycle, whichever comes first. Visit the Lifecycle page to find the support timelines for your particular product.


ADRMS on Windows 2008 falls under the Operating System lifecycle, since it is a role in the operating system.

Now you know. All of you slackers need to update your V1 SP1 installs to SP2, ASAP. 😀
