Hello Folks,

Yair Cohen on our team is going to explain to you the new Preview release for Microsoft.Protection PowerShell cmdlets.

Hello everyone, i m Yair, a program manager on the RMS  team.  

Microsoft.Protection PowerShell cmdlets are designed for developers, IT pros and products who like to script with AD RMS SDK without directly integrating with AD RMS SDK 2.1 package. Microsoft.Protection cmdlets provide all the rich functionalities provided by AD RMS SDK 2.1. Based on your feedback on bugs and features, we are happy to annouce the second preview release (CTP2) of our PowerShell cmdlets.

Notably. the newly released CTP2 supports silent authentication with RMS service. This is crucial for server/service workloads where there is no interactive involvement from user. We also fix numerous bugs as part of this preview release.

In this CTP2 release package, we provide:

  • Microsoft.Protection cmdlet binaries
  • Install and Uninstall ps1
  • Readme.docx for the install instructions and details on the new cmdlets.
  • Extensive cmdlet help by running Get-Help on each cmdlet.

Microsoft.Protection cmdlets continue work in progress. We will update frequently based on your feedback for feature requests and bugs. However, we will support the PowerShell cmdlets deployment in production environments.

 To give our cmdlets a try, go to https://connect.microsoft.com/site1170/Downloads/DownloadDetails.aspx?DownloadID=49294 and download the package.
