Updated: January 7, 2014

Applies To: Windows 8.1, Windows PowerShell 4.0, Windows Server 2012 R2

New-FsrmAction

Returns an FSRM action object.

Syntax

Parameter Set: CreateAction0
New-FsrmAction [-Type] <ActionTypeEnum> [-AsJob] [-Body <String> ] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-Command <String> ] [-CommandParameters <String> ] [-EventType <ActionEventTypeEnum> ] [-KillTimeOut <Int32> ] [-MailBCC <String> ] [-MailCC <String> ] [-MailTo <String> ] [-ReportTypes <ActionReportTypeEnum[]> ] [-RunLimitInterval <Int32> ] [-SecurityLevel <ActionSecurityLevelEnum> ] [-ShouldLogError] [-Subject <String> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-WorkingDirectory <String> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The New-FsrmAction cmdlet returns a File Server Resource Manager (FSRM) action object. An FsrmAction object does not contain the trigger for the action. You can pass the action object to other cmdlets that use notifications and quota thresholds.

An FsrmAction object encapsulates a single action, such as sending an email. FSRM does not save an action object unless it is used as part of another object. For example, you can use an FsrmAction object to create notifications and quota thresholds. The saved object provides the trigger for the action.

The New-FsrmAction cmdlet supports the following actions:

-- Email: Send email to the user or administrator that the event triggered
-- Event: Create an event log entry
-- Command: Run a command that the administrator specifies
-- Report: Run one or more storage reports

Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

Examples

Example 1: Create an action that sends an email

This command returns an object that indicates that the server sends an email when an associated event occurs. The recipient of the email is the user sarah.jones@contosco.com and the CC recipient of the email is the administrator, john.smith@contosco.com.


PS C:\> New-FsrmAction Email -MailCC "john.smith@contosco.com" -MailTo "sarah.jones@contosco.com" -Subject "Warning: Approaching storage limit" -Body "You are about to reach the end of your available storage."

Example 2: Create an action that has a run limit

This command returns an object that indicates that the server sends an email to the administrator and the file owner when an associated event occurs. The command specifies that the event can trigger no more than once every 120 minutes. If the event does trigger, the action will have no effect before the time interval passes.


PS C:\> New-FsrmAction Email -MailTo "john.smith@contosco.com;sarah.jones@contosco.com" -Subject "Warning: Approaching storage limit" -Body "You are about to reach the end of your available storage." -RunLimitInterval 120

Example 3: Create an action that logs an event

This command returns an object that indicates the server logs an event that contains the specified message when an associated event occurs. The event should trigger no more than once every 180 minutes. If the event does trigger, no additional event log entries are created before the time interval passes.


PS C:\> New-FsrmAction Event -EventType Information -Body "The user [File Owner] is about to reach the end of his available storage." -RunLimitInterval 180

Example 4: Create an action that runs a command and logs errors

This command returns an object that indicates that when an associated event occurs, the server runs Cmd.exe with the specified parameters. The command specifies that the server records errors codes from the command in the error log.


PS C:\> New-FsrmAction Command -Command "c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe"-CommandParameters "echo [source file path] >> c:\log.txt" -ShouldLogError

Example 5: Create an action that runs a storage report

This command returns an object that indicates that the server runs LargeFiles and DuplicateFiles reports when an associated event occurs.


PS C:\> New-FsrmAction Report -ReportType @(LargeFiles, DuplicateFiles)
