I'm trying to get my Windows Server 2008 R2 to send an email when a task completes (running a batch file). Although I cannot seem to get it to work at all.
This is a coporate environment that has an two DC's an Exchange server and a File Server. I have a task to run a batch file every hour and I'm trying to get an email when that completes. I created a separate task to troubleshoot and currently looks like:
Although I get an Action Failed Event Error:
I've tried to alter the user who is running the task (admin(s), SYSTEM) and trying many different types of SMTP Server names/formats, i.e. 'server.domain.local', 'server.domain', 'server', 'ip address', 'server.domain.com'. Several people online suggested checking if Integrated Windows Authentication
is enabled on the Default Receive Connector
, but it already is!
I cannot for the life of me figure out what is going wrong with this as it should be working just fine! Can anyone please help me?
I DO NOT
want a workaround or to download an application like Blat.
