File Server Resource Manager (FSRM) Email Notifications

Posted: 7th November 2012 by Seth Killey in Windows Server

If you’re like me and set up quotas on redirected storage (My Documents), you likely also want to setup email notifications so your users know when they hit the quota threshold.  The problem is when sending the e-mail alert from FSRM to an internal hub transport server the message will likely not be delivered because FSRM does not have the necessary permissions to send the message on behalf of whatever user or distribution list you specified in the default “From” e-mail address.  In my case the notifications comes from a distribution list (generic IT group) so I needed to run the following PS script on my hub transport server:

Add-ADPermissions -Identity <Distribution Group> -User <domain\FSRM Server Name> -ExtendedRigths Send-As

    I have tried this command with no luck. It does not like my server name. It says User or group domain\server name wasn’t found. I have tried several different variations of the domain\server name. ?
