We still have local AD RMS running on Windows Server 2008 (not R2). It is barely used, but there are a number of files protected by it in local share (maybe also in personal computers, but that's not important). We are not using AIP yet (as RMS was not very used, there was no interest in AIP either). But as AIP is enabled on our tenant and there will be changes incompatible with local RMS, we are looking into options:
1) Is there a way to somehow identify all AD RMS protected documents in a local share (via search or something)? All i can see in RMS console is the number of times a license has been assigned. Not even users who have used it (we have User CALs).
2) I have read that only Windows Server 2008 R2 is supported for migration to AIP. Is there still some way to migrate from older version?

The thing is that RMS didn't ever really took of here. But it was still left in place as there could be still a few files protected by it in the shares or even on users PCs.. Anyway, i have already contacted our partners and got roughly the same answers. It is added to the next year plans (though not sure if it will be done actually).
