Specifies that Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 should use the location of the RMS server that is stored in Active Directory, rather than an administrator manually specifying the location of the Windows RMS.

stsadm -o setproperty

-propertyname irmrmsusead

-propertyvalue {True | False}

**\[-url\]** *\<https://server\_name\>*

The syntax for the getproperty operation is:

stsadm -o getproperty

propertyname irmrmsusead

**\[-url\]** *\<https://server\_name\>*


You can substitute -pn for -propertyname and -pv for -propertyvalue.
