SecurityPolicy object

The SecurityPolicy object can be used to decommission a server and to specify a super users group. You can retrieve this object by calling the SecurityPolicy property on the Enterprise object.

When provisioned, AD RMS creates a special distribution group that has full control over all rights-protected content stored on the server. Members of this group can decrypt any protected content files or remove protection from them. By default, this super users group is not set, but you can use this object to specify a new or existing Active Directory distribution group to use. The group must exist in the same Active Directory forest as the AD RMS installation and is specified by its email address. Any user accounts that are members of the group that you specify are automatically granted super user permissions.

You can also use this object to decommission an AD RMS server. After a server has been decommissioned, AD RMS issues an end user license to any user who requests content, thereby effectively eliminating protection for that content.
