Use the following procedure to export a trusted publishing domain (TPD) to a file.

Membership in the local AD RMS Enterprise Administrators, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete this procedure.

To export a trusted publishing domain
  1. Open the Active Directory Rights Management Services console, and then expand the AD RMS cluster.

  2. In the console tree, expand Trust Policies and then click Trusted Publishing Domains.

  3. In the results pane, select the certificate for the domain you want to export.

  4. In the Actions pane, click Export Trusted Publishing Domain.

  5. In the Publishing domain file box, type the name of the publishing domain file you are exporting or click Save As to export it to a special location. Make sure you specify the .xml file name extension.

  6. In the Password and Confirm password boxes, type a strong password that will be used to encrypt the trusted publishing domain file. You need this password to import this file into another AD RMS cluster.

  7. If this trusted publishing domain file will be imported into versions of Rights Management Services (RMS), click the Saved as V1 compatible trusted publishing domain file check box.

  8. Click Finish to create the trusted publishing domain file.
