Hello Friends , Today we will talk about how to use System Center Orchestrator to create Runbooks .
In this post here we will talk about Runbooks and how to create a Sample Runbook.
Lets first open up Orchestrator and then create a New Folder : Screen Shot below:
Once Folder is clicked , then name it the way you want . I named it Abheek
The runbook I am going to create is a simple runbook which will start a service if at all it finds its being in stopped state .
from the right pane , drag and drop Get Service status onto the middle pane:
Once this is done , we need to configure the get service thing:
Just double click it and then fill in the below information (computer name and the service name)
Once this is done , drag and drop start stop service activity from right pane and link two :
Double click on the arrow between the two activities to get the status of Service and enter below:
Once you get the status , click on start /stop activity and then click on start:
Thats it . Now you are done
