As per Carol’s introduction post , she's letting you know what's new and hot in the docs for this month.
Dan (on behalf of the RMS team)
The Documentation Library for Azure Rights Management has been updated on the web and the latest content has Updated: October 1, 2015 (or later) at the top of the page.
Summary of the documentation available: Getting Started with Rights Management | Configuring Rights Management | Using Rights Management | Administering Rights Management by using Windows PowerShell
Windows PowerShell seems to be a recurring theme again this month, helping to deliver key business benefits when you integrate Rights Management with other solutions. Specifically, protecting all file types on Windows Server with FCI , an easy administrator configuration to enable IRM on all users' OneDrive for Business if you have SharePoint Online, and adding Office apps support for mobile devices :
There are no updates to the RMS sharing application documentation this month.
We value customer feedback and try to incorporate it when possible. Although we can't promise to make the docs perfect for everybody, we are committed to continual improvement. If you have any feedback about these docs or any other docs for Azure RMS, email AskIPTeam@Microsoft.com .
The following information lists the topics that contain significant changes since the last update (September 2015).
- Updated the Client device capabilities table for minor clarifications (no new entries).
- Updated the migration row with links and removed references to Windows Server 2003, now that this operating system is out of support. Added a new row that differentiates the licensing requirements because Azure RMS, unlike AD RMS, doesn't require a user license to consume protected content.
- Updated Step 2, to revise the instructions (all configurations) for importing multiple TPDs. Previously, the instructions said to import all files as Active, whereas only the TPD you want to use to protect content by using Azure RMS should be set to Active.
- Updated the SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business: IRM Configuration section, with extensive instructions and supporting scripts for admins to configure OneDrive for Business for users. The introduction to this post has more details.
- Update to the Authorizing servers to use the RMS connector section, for SharePoint servers configuration, which now covers service accounts (recommended) as well as Local System accounts.
- Updated the workaround instructions (prerequisite 3) to clarify that you must run Set-RMSServerAuthentication after editing the registry if yourAzure region is outside North America. For example, if you successfully ran Set-RMSServerAuthentication before editing the registry, edit the registry and then immediately run Get-RMSTemplate, the templates won't download until you run Set-RMSServerAuthentication again. The error message that you'll typically see is "The system cannot find the file specified. HRESULT: 0x80070002".
- Added a new example from Eddie Bowers in CSS: Create a .CSV file with the protection status for all files in a folder and any subfolders . This example builds on the previous example Eddie provided, but outputs the results to a .CSV file so that you can easily sort and order the information.
