How can I change the 60-minute flood setting for Windows Server 2003 R2 File Server Resource Manager (FSRM) templates?

A. The 60-minute flood setting limits the system to performing actions associated with a quota or file screen to once an hour no matter how many violations of the quota or file screen occur. The simplest way to modify the setting is to export the template to XML, as explained in the FAQ "How can I copy Windows Server 2003 R2 File Server Resource Manager (FSRM) templates between servers?" ( ); modify the RunLimitInterval value in the FileGroupActions section to the number of minutes for flooding, as the figure shows; then import the template with the new run limit in place.

If you set the RunLimitInterval to 0, there will be no suppression of actions, which in the case of email, might result in the user being flooded with violation messages.
