New featuresRMS with SP2 provides support for the following features.
Native support for Microsoft SQL Server 2005In previous releases of RMS, a workaround was required to use RMS with SQL Server 2005.
In RMS with SP2, this issue has been fixed.
Support for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007The Office SharePoint Server 2007 document library automatically applies RMS permissions to documents based on the Office SharePoint Server 2007 rights when they are downloaded. This is achieved by installing the RMS with SP2 client on the Office SharePoint Server 2007 server. We do not recommend that you install RMS with SP2 server and Office SharePoint Server 2007 on the same computer.
Increased security on messages to the logging databaseIn this release, all Message Queuing messages from the RMS servers to the RMS logging database are digitally signed.
Larger server batching sizesIn this release, it is now possible for an RMS-enabled application to retrieve multiple-use licenses for different user accounts from a single license request to the RMS server. This increases performance by reducing the overhead of multiple license requests for the same piece of rights-protected content.
Enhanced group expansion across forestsIn this release, RMS group expansion across forests is accomplished by using a SOAP request to a new ASP.NET Web service that is running on the RMS server. For more information about RMS, visit the following Microsoft Web page:
