Share name in the user quota email notification ?


Hi All,

I am setting up User quota to be notified to the users via an email when they exceed the soft limit on the share.

when we receive the mail, it contains the full path of the qtree.

Below is my mail format.

p>Hi User,


<p>You (as user <b>DFM_QUOTA_USER_NAME</b>) have used up <b>DFM_QUOTA_PERCENT_USED (DFM_QUOTA_USED out of DFM_QUOTA_LIMIT)</b> of

available <b>DFM_QUOTA_TYPE</b> quota on <b>DFM_QUOTA_FILE_SYSTEM_NAME</b>.


<p>Please delete files that you no longer need.

DFM_QUOTA_FILE_SYSTEM_NAME gives the full path to qtree which is shared, rather than the Share name.

A general user doesn't need to know what exactly is the path, as he is only concerned about the share name.

Can we in anyway change this?

Thanks and Regards,



Hi All,

This is not possible with DFM.

Integration with FSRM is not possible either, I guess i needs a seperate license.

Any tewaking possible with the Powershell SDK
