RAJAN: I am using Win 7 so AD RMS client is installed by default.

Sorry, I hit the wrong button. Please add this to the above comments

In Task Schedule on the client side:
1. Enable AD RMS Rights Template - Automated
2. Run AD RMS Rights Template - Manual, eveytime when you create new template on the AD RMS server.

Office 2010 is still not communicating with the same AD RMS. any help?
