File Server Resource Manager (FSRM) depends on the File Server Resource Manager service (Srmsvc) to run. Windows cannot run quotas, file screens, and storage reports without the service running.
Srmsvc is configured by default to start automatically and run at all times. If the service is not running, one of the following issues has occurred:
The service failed to start
The service was manually stopped by an administrator (not recommended
The service stopped unexpectedly)
Start the service
A member of the Administrators group must start the service.
To start File Server Resource Manager service (Srmsvc):
1. Click Start, point to All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.
2. At the command prompt, type:
net start srmsvc
To verify that the File Server Resource Manager service (Srmsvc) is running, review the output of the net start command.
