RMS PowerShell cmdlets - preview release

Hello Folks,

The RMS team has been hard at work and now have our first preview release of a set of PowerShell cmdlets using AD RMS SDK.

 Microsoft.Protection PowerShell cmdlets are designed for developers, IT pros and products who like to script with AD RMS SDK without directly integrating with AD RMS SDK 2.1 package. Microsoft.Protection cmdlets provide all the rich functionalities provided by AD RMS SDK 2.1.

In this CTP1 release package, we provide:

  • Microsoft.Protection cmdlet binaries
  • Install and Uninstall ps1
  • Readme.docx for the install instructions and the list of cmdlets in CTP1 release
  • Extensive cmdlet help by running Get-Help on each cmdlet.

Microsoft.Protection cmdlets are work in progress. We will update rapidly based on your feedback for feature requests and bugs.

 To give our cmdlets a try, go to - https://connect.microsoft.com/site1170/Downloads/DownloadDetails.aspx?DownloadID=49294 and download the package.

 NOTE: If you haven’t registered on Microsoft Connect, then: go to www.connect.microsoft.com, sign in with your Microsoft Account > Directory> Search for Rights Management Services > Join.

Enjoy them and let us know about your experience.

Dan

  • It seems like you can't hit the RMS service/server from my machine. What is your RMS configuration? Can you please give more details on your client and server environment?

  • I have installed the cmdlet package, however when i run the various commands i get errors. When i run the Get-RMSServer command, i get the following error : GET-RMSServer : The operation being requested was not performed because the user has not been authenticated. ... Anyone has encountered this error before and found a resolution?

  • The link is not working as the product has gone live: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee617271.aspx

  • @Dave: the Microsoft.Protection cmdlets have still not made it to the overall product PowerShell cmdlets, so you will have to go to https://connect.microsoft.com/site1170/Downloads/DownloadDetails.aspx?DownloadID=49294 as described above.
