WinQuota provides default user named IUSR_WQUOTA to run notifications with
low privileges. You can specify your own credentials for every script
individually through UI (impersonation user/password fields).
Usually Power User is enough to run most of scripts. Privileges
less to Power User requires policy tuning, beginning from list of allowed
applications to run, e.g. cscript.exe. In such critical cases it might be
optimal, but this is not easy case. The typical privileges are:
- Allow access from network
- Allow process impersonation
- Allow client impersonation
- Allow batch logon
So you can configure it manually through policy editor snap-in,
local policy settings.
We shipped just pretty simple scripts to send email notifications to specific
address only; so if it is your case you need to
- open such script, for example email_cdo_simple.vbs (this is
easiest script which uses IIS components to send email, without
- specify your email addresses and possibly email text
(from address and recipient address are subjects to change).
- store updated script wioth certain name you need.
- specify this script as notification.
In case you need to send email notifications directly to certain user(s), you
need to use bit complex script like email_cdo_simple_ad.vbs with the same corrections
for From address (To address is calculated automatically from AD). This way is
applicable if all emails of your users are specified in AD (typical case).
It works since w2k3 out of box; might need ADO upgrade on W2k.
