I will show with a few simple steps how to implement automatic tagging or in place tagging so you don’t have to wait for your next migration or force management to use s spreadsheet to identify every document by using Boolean search not just synonyms as part of your Term Set.
If you choose to only use the Enterprise Keyword Settings on every document library I will give you a script to enable this feature on every document library. If you choose to use your own site columns I will provide a script that will make your Content Type the primary and apply it to every document library, then show how to modify the search result refiners so that you can drill through your search results. You don’t have to wait to make search work. Also, receive an 8GB Flash Drive filled with FREE SharePoint content for your participation during the session.

The Administration Toolkit contains additional programs that Microsoft developers created while working on Windows Rights Management Services (RMS). We found them useful in troubleshooting registry overrides, intended and allowed us to make modifications and get information about the environment.
We have taken great care to ensure that the tools operate as they should, but they are not part of Windows RMS and are not supported by Microsoft. For this reason, Microsoft technical support is unable to answer questions about this toolkit.
Note: The administration toolkit is designed for use on servers with US-English regional options.
The following tools are included in the toolkit. To learn more about a tool, open the Readme file for the tool:
AD SCP Register
Use this tool to register or unregister a service connection point in Active Directory.
Note: For information about implementing, deploying, and administering RMS, see the RMS TechCenter http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=42498
IRM Check – Configuration Test
As time permits I will continue this series and write about the additional tools… Most if not all of the additional features require .Net 3.5.
Also, the only tool I found that did not work was the RMS Log Analyzer as can be seen from the screenshot below. I haven’t had the chance to debug but it looks like a table wasn’t created when you create the DRMS_Log_Admin Db

Original release date: June 04, 2012 Source: US-CERT Alert TA12-156A
We identified that an older cryptography algorithm could be exploited and then be used to sign code as if it originated from Microsoft. Specifically, our Terminal Server Licensing Service, which allowed customers to authorize Remote Desktop services in their enterprise, used that older algorithm and provided certificates with the ability to sign code, thus permitting code to be signed as if it came from Microsoft.
Security Advisory 2718704: Update to Phased Mitigation Strategy What we found is that certificates issued by our Terminal Services licensing certification authority, which are intended to only be used for license server verification, could also be used to sign code as Microsoft. Specifically, when an enterprise customer requests a Terminal Services activation license, the certificate issued by Microsoft in response to the request allows code signing without accessing Microsoft’s internal PKI infrastructure.
The following details about the affected certificates were provided in Microsoft Security Advisory (2718704):
Certificate: Microsoft Enforced Licensing Intermediate PCA
Certificate: Microsoft Enforced Licensing Intermediate PCA
Certificate: Microsoft Enforced Licensing Registration Authority CA (SHA1)
Revoke trust in affected certificates Manually add the affected certificates to the Untrusted Certificate Store. The Certificates MMC snap-in and Certutil command can be used on Windows systems.
