I recently had a customer getting the following error whenever he tried to use an RMS template in Office, and either send the content or save it:

"The permission policy you have selected is no longer in use. Contact your administrator to obtain new or updated permission policies."

This isn't a wonderfully descriptive error.

The reason this was happening to my customer was because he had put up a brand new RMS infrastructure, but had previously had RMS in his environment, and had bootstrapped this machine against it.

This caused him to have two publishing licenses in his DRM folder. One was expired, and was from the old installation, and one was from the new installation. The RMS client code can't tell the difference.

So we look at the date on the template, look at the date on the publishing cert, hit a mismatch against the system time, and wallah...you are pulling your hair out.

To fix the issue, just rename the DRM folder or delete the offending CLC, and restart whatever application you were using.

The problem can also happen if your system time is incorrect on the RMS server, or on the client so check that too.

Hope this helps.

  • Hi Jason,

    After reading your blogs on RMS, I have learned too much and got greatly improved on my tech-knowledges. May I ask you one question?

    These days, I meet a partner who is in trouble of RMS. He reset up his RMS server, however, when he logs onto one non-domain PC and tries to open a RMS-protected document, the messeage will pop out: need to register a .Net passport(surely he has set up intranet and extranet URL).

    Then he removes his extranet URL and keep the intranet URL only, strange thing happens: it asks him for the account and password. Then the rms-protected document can be opened.

    May I get your kind suggestion on this case at your first convenient time?

    Sincerely,

    Jack

  • Not sure. It sounds like he can't reach the extranet URL.

    Can you open the browser and go to

    https://rms.extranet.com/_wmcs/certification/certification.asmx

    If not then you need to figure out why. Could be a DNS issue, could be a proxy issue. The possibilities are many.
