Earlier this week at the Microsoft Exchange Conference (MEC 2012) I led a session titled Configuring Rights Management Server for Office 365 and Exchange On-Premises [E14.314]. This blog shows three videos covering installation, configuration and integration of RMS with Exchange 2010 and Office 365. For Exchange 2013, the steps are mostly identical.

Installing AD RMS

This video looks at the steps to install AD RMS. For the purposes of the demonstration, this is a single server lab deployment running Windows Server 2008 R2, Exchange Server 2010 (Mailbox, CAS and Hub roles) and is the domain controller for the domain. As it is a domain controller, a few of the install steps are slightly different (those that are to do with user accounts) and these changes are pointed out in the video, as the recommendation is to install AD RMS on its own server or set of servers behind a IP load balancer.

Configuring AD RMS for Exchange 2010

The second video looks at the configuration of AD RMS for use in Exchange. For the purposes of the demonstration, this is a single server lab deployment running Windows Server 2008 R2, Exchange Server 2010 (Mailbox, CAS and Hub roles) and is the domain controller for the domain. This video looks at the default ‘Do Not Forward’ restriction as well as creating new templates for use in Exchange Server (OWA and Transport Rules) and then publishing these templates so they can be used in Outlook and other Microsoft Office products.

 

Integrating AD RMS with Office 365

The third video looks at the steps needed to ensure that your Office 365 mailboxes can use the RMS server on premises. The steps include exporting and importing the Trusted Publishing Domain (the TPD) and then marking the templates as distributed (i.e. available for use). The video finishes with a demo of the templates in action.
