Problem Configuring Email Alerts with File Server Resource Manager 2012
Posted on 2014-10-06
I am trying to configure the File Resource Manager to send me email notifications when quotas are hit and so forth. I have configured the Email Notifications tab as follows:
SMTP Server Name: exchange.ad.mydomain.com
Default Administrator Recipient: email@example.com
Default "From" email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
When I try to send the test email I get the following error:
"Failed to send the test email due to the following error: Cannot send the email due to an error. Check the application event log for more information."
Upon checking the event log, I see the following:
"The SMTP server requires a secure connection or the client was not authenticated. The server response was 5.7.1. Client was not authenticated."
Upon my research, the server needs the Send-As privileges on the user account. With that said, I created a user account "svc_FSRM" and ran the following powershell command:
Add-ADPermission -Identity “svc_FSRM” –user “ad.mydomain.com\fileserver$” -ExtendedRights “Send-as”
When I go into the Exchange ECP and access the svc_FSRM user account, under mail delegation section "fileserver" is listed under the "Send As" section.
Unfortunately, when I try to send the test email again from File Server Resource Manager....I am still given the same error as before. For the life of me, I cannot seem to figure out why the test message will not come through. Any thoughts?
