  8. 8. System Center Orchestrator• Graphical IT Workflow EngineActivities Managed through Custom Workflows• Automation for System Center SuiteOpsManager, ConfigMgr, ServiceMgr, DPM, VMM, Self-Service• Extends to entire Microsoft stackWindows Server, SQL, Exchange, SharePoint, FTP• Extensive Third Party IntegrationVMware, HP, IBM• New in SP1: Server 2012 and SQL 2012
  9. 9. Orchestrator Components• Management ServerWindows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012• Orchestration DatabaseMicrosoft SQL Server 2008 R2, Microsoft SQL Server 2012SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS• Runbook ServerWindows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012• Orchestrator Web ServicesInternet Information Services (IIS) 7.0 and enabled IIS roleWCF HTTP Activation• Runbook DesignerWindows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows 7, Windows 8, .NET 3.5 SP1• Orchestrator Integration Packs
  10. 10. Orchestrator Requirements• Windows Server 2008 R2 / 2012Minimum 1 gigabyte (GB) of RAM, 2 GB or more recommended200 megabyte (MB) of available hard disk spaceDual-core Intel microprocessor, 2.1 gigahertz (GHz) or betterAll components are 32-bit• Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS)Orchestrator Setup enables IIS if it is not enabled• Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1• Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5• Active Directory• SQL Server 2008 R2 / 2012
  11. 11. Management Server• Facilitates communication between Orchestratorcomponents and the SQL Database• Coordinates assignment as scheduling ofRunbooks• Single 32-bit server role• Connection target for Runbook Designer• All critical configuration data and logs are stored inOrchestration database• SQL Server database collation MUST BESQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS
  12. 12. Runbook Server• Execution of Runbooks• Communicate directly with the database• Dynamically balanced across multipleinstances• Primary Runbook Server is configurable• Runbooks run by default in the securitycontext of the Runbook Server service acct• Single Runbook Server can execute up to 50runbooks simultaneously…
  13. 13. Web Services• The Orchestration Console - Silverlight web-interface:List runbooks and runbook serversStatus and history of runbooksView high-level runbook definitionsStart and stop runbooksView Orchestrator related eventsUses TCP port 82 by defaultLeverages the Orchestrator web service• The Orchestrator web serviceREST-based serviceEnables custom applications to connect to OrchestratorConduit for the Orchestration consoleUsed by other services (SCSM) to interact with OrchestratorUses port 81 by default
  14. 14. Runbook Designer• Create, edit, execute Runbooks• GUI “drag-and-drop” workflow editor• Includes Runbook tester• Deployment Manager used for IntegrationPack management
