Administration Toolkit for RMS, SP2 – IRM Check – Configuration Test

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

  • Get RMS SCP

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
