AD RMS Server

[The AD RMS SDK leveraging functionality exposed by the client in Msdrm.dll is available for use in Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows 7, Windows Server 2012, and Windows 8. It may be altered or unavailable in subsequent versions. Instead, use Active Directory Rights Management Services SDK 2.1, which leverages functionality exposed by the client in Msipc.dll.]

The server component of Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS) is implemented by a set of web services that run on Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS). Beginning with Windows Server 2008, you can install and configure the AD RMS service by adding it as a role. To install the service on prior operating systems, download it from the Microsoft download center at Microsoft Windows Rights Management Services with Service Pack 2. Of the many web services installed, the following are important for application development.
