Can't get ActiveSync and Rights Management Server to work on same SBS 2003 SP1 server
Posted on 2006-03-29
I had RMS up and running and "working", but I can't seem to get it to live harmoniously with ActiveSync. FYI, I've never touched RMS before, so I'm a total noob here...and not really strong w/ IIS either.
My setup is SBS 2003 SP1 behind a hardware firewall. I am running Exchange, SharePoint, and RMS on this server (will break them out later as money permits and size of our organization requires.) At this time, I'm also testing WM5 devices w/ ActiveSync. I had them working until I installed RMS which broke ActiveSync. The fix is to make the following change in the IIS Metabase:
LM\W3SVC\1\ROOT\NTAuthenticationProviders change from "NTLM" to "Negotiate,NTLM"
However, this fix seems to break RMS. After the change I receive the following error opening an RMS protected document:
"A problem occurred trying to contact the restricted permission service."
On a possibly related note, RMS is not acting as I would expect it to. When protecting or opening a document, it always prompts to "Select Service" and the options being a .NET Passport account or a Windows Account. I expected it to automatically use the current logged in user's AD credentials.
Thanks for any help.
