When configuring RMS server integration with SharePoint, one of the tasks is to add specific rights to the ServerConfiguration.asmx file within the RMS cluster application itself.
It took me a while to figure this out, but the RMS Service Group was renamed in Server 2008. I kept browsing for the group and it kept telling me that ‘RMS Service Group’ didn’t exist… Thinking that I was going crazy I went and checked my actual service account to see who it was a member of… doh! The name had changed in 2008.
- In Windows Rights Management Server (a separate download for Windows Server 2003), the service group is ‘RMS Service Group’.
- In AD Rights Management Server (which is now a server role Windows Server 2008), that group is now ‘AD RMS Service Group’.
