I came across a great article by Jimmy Harper on how to export and import SCOM user roles and notifications. I’ve dealt with migrating notifications in the past but it is refreshing to see that a method exists which allows the same to be done for user roles. It certainly makes working with side-by-side deployments that little bit easier.
Sometimes with your SCOM environments you might come across an email relay that does not allow Anonymous authentication. When this happens your notification subscriptions will not be able to send email.
All you need to do is create a windows run as account using credentials which have access to the mail relay and then assign that account to the Notification Account Run as Profile.
Note: The AD account which you use will need an email address which will send your notifications.
