Out Of The Box Sharepoint (?)

SMS Alert

Filed under: powershell, Sharepoint — Peter Kruisman @ 8:06 pm

With the use of a SMS testaccount from Red Oxygen testing the Text Message settings in Sharepoint2010 Central Administration resulted in a long wait


At first configuring this service seemed trivial but this wait without resulting in an error message or directions of possible causes was somewhat frustrating.  
After reading the instructions  in this Technet  article I concluded that the long wait was the result of a missing certificate. I continued the configuration with importing the certificate  of the  Office Mobile Service (OMS)  page from Red Oxygen.

Service page

After this Install of the certificate (Go Daddy ) start the MMC shell. Add/ Open the certificate snapin

Export the imported certificate authority to for example C:\sms.cer

Use this Powershell script to register this trusted root authority
$cert = Get-PfxCertificate c:\sms.cer
New-SPTrustedRootAuthority -Name GoDaddy -Certificate $cert

After this the SMS service is functional

Setting the alert
