What's you email address?

I have part a doc that's is not an official Adobe docuument, but that could be useful to setup up the environment right.

Thank for you document.

i have some remaks :

When you write -alias you have to put the ".." .

For me the keystore is not a .jsk but a .keystore.

I did the 3 step with succes.

I modified the server.xml

In internet explorer, i did all the step with succes.

For the Part 2, I can connect to https://ipadress:8443/edc/ but I don't have the login and password. It's differents from login of LiveCycle.

But, in LiveCyle, I go to (it's in french) Service > LiveCycle Rights Management ES > configuration > Configuration du serveur.

Here, I modify *URL de base : http://localhost:8080 by https://ipadress:8443.

Now, i can connect to LiveCcyle with htpps protocole.

But, my problem is always present : Acorbat doesn't want to connect to the server https://ipadress:8443.

Thank for your help
I don't know... Acrobat tell me, when I want to connect to the server : "Acrobat can't connect to the server https://ipadress:8443. Verify your connection and try again"

Is Acrobat on the same machine as the IE you imported the cert into? Acrobat actually uses a browser to connect to Rights Management so you need to make sure the cert is added in IE on the same machine where you use Acrobat.

Do you get any "security" warnings when you connect to LC using the browser?

No it's no the same. I have to import the certificate (LC_cert.cer) on the machine which use Acrobat?

Can I import the cert by the network or bay copy/paste the file on the machine ?

Thank for your help.

I test now.
It's wonderfull!! I can connect acorbat with the server!!

Thank you very much!!!

But know I have a second problem...

When I choose Policy server, Acorbat send me to a IE page :


with Login and password. But these are not those of the server user, the client user and the LiveCycle User.

Is there a relationship with the keypass of keytool? If yes, I know the password that I have returned but not the login

Thank again for your help

There is no relathionship with the keypass or keytool. The only reason you use the keytool is to enable SSL. Once that's working, you're done with that.

All authentication is managed by LiveCycle User Manager. You can see the list of users under Settings/User Management/Users and Groups in adminui.

Now you also need to make sure the users have the "LiveCycle Rights Management End User" role associated to them in order to access the web interface. You can also set that though adminu.

Ok thank, I create a user and i can connect acrobat with the server.

Thank a lot!!

I'm facing same trouble with RM.

I've got LCES server running on jboss with SSL enabled.

Can connect from IE without warnings, but still can't connect from Acrobat or RM Extension for Office.

Can you tell me the steps to fix this, or share the doc's about configuring Rights Management mentioned here?

mail: naota" at "

Thank you!!

If you hit https://nameofserver:8443/adminui,

do you get a prompt? If yes,you need to add the cert to the trust store.

Acrobat uses a browser to communicate to RM and if there's a prompt, it won't know what to do with it.

You basically need to make sure you've installed the cert.

Thank you for reply.

Yes, I'm installed the cert into trust store and after that I can enter on https://serverip:8443/adminui without any browser warnings.

Still can't make it from RM extension for MS Office.

Any suggestions?

If you close the browser and hit the url again, do you get the promt or you just get to the page?


I do face the same problem of connecting Acrobat with the LSRM server to get the server settings so that i could get the policies that are there in the server and assign it to the pdf...

When I enter the url https://serverip:8443/adminui in IE I do get the prompt"(Security alert)" informing that "I am abt to view a page over a secure conn"...

Can anyone pls give me information abt how to overcome this issue and can u pls tell that the certificate that was discussed in the earlier posts..

If you do have any helper doc regarding this pls send it to ukvignesh(at)gmail(dot)com...
