I'm trying to configure IRM for SharePoint and getting the error "The required Active Directory Rights Management Service Client (MSIPC.DLL) is present but could not be configured properly. IRM will not work until the client is configured properly. "
I have also setup ADRMS in a POC server (https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/windows/it-pro/windows-server-2008-R2-and-2008/cc770957(v=ws.10) ), but haven't register SCP as this is not required if we enable client side ADRMS service discovery(https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/information-protection/rms-client/client-deployment-notes#enabling-client-side-service-discovery-by-using-the-windows-registry) and I have provided necessary permission for the ServerCertification.asmx file(even added Everyone account).

Still getting the same error and tried to research more but couldn't able to fix this. Could someone help me to fix this issue?
