]]> <![CDATA[Automated Multiple Review Activities Approval]]> Wed, 06 Dec 2017 12:25:35 +0000 Raj Seegobin Hi All,

I need your help to get this sorted out. We have SCSM with several service requests (SR). One SR  (for eg new IPAD) has process  as follow. User makes the service request => The User’s Manager approve/reject it (first approval) => If approved , another approval is required from the DCEO=> If the DCEO approves , it then only a manual activity (IT part) is triggered. The DCEO must only receives approval request when the first one is approved.

Please advise how we can automate this process. (user logs SR -> Manager Receives Mail for approval => If approved DCEO receives a mail for approval. => if Approved – IT team receives mail the RAs have been approved and they can start implementation/provisioning process.

Note : For simple SR where only Manager’s approval is required – we have successfully implemented it with orchestrator.

]]> <![CDATA[Reply To: SCOM 2007 Alert States]]> Thu, 04 May 2017 23:01:31 +0000 Rick Follow up.  Why shouldn’t I do this:

$Output = C:\Windows\sysnative\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe -NonInteractive -Command {$Code}

That takes me from a 32-bit v2 session to a 64-bit v4 (on my server) session. As hard as it was to find this solution where’s the catch?

]]> <![CDATA[SCOM 2007 Alert States]]> Thu, 04 May 2017 15:59:59 +0000 Rick I have an Orchestrator runbook monitoring for SCOM 2007 alerts that does the following:
Monitor Alert > Change ResolutionState > Execute Runbook2

When a new alert is generated in ‘Monitor Alert’ Orchestrator picks it up, changes the resolution state to a custom state, and then more magic happens in Runbook2.

I need to work around the following scenario:

  1. SCOM generates a new alert
  2. Orchestrator picks up new alert (Monitor Alert)
  3. SCOM closes the alert (Alert Resolved by the System)
  4. Orchestrator changes ResolutionState
  5. Runbook2 executed

In this scenario the ResolutionState has changed from ‘New’, to ‘Closed’, to ‘MyCustomState’ in the span of a few seconds. When Runbook2 executes it checks in multiple spots to see if the alert’s ResolutionState equals ‘Closed’, which is a state that will never be automatically returned to.

Can I query the alert for something other than ResolutionState to see if the alert has been healed?

]]> <![CDATA[Create user session from System Center Orchestrator]]> Wed, 15 Mar 2017 20:09:09 +0000 Subsun I have a requirement to create a user session and launch an application on a remote computer. The application should be available when user connect to the user session using RDP.

Only possible option I found is to use a scheduled task to launch an application by selecting option “Run only when user is logged on.”. But I am not sure how to create user session using script or if any integration packs available to manage the RDP sessions.

I would appreciate any pointers to accomplish this.

]]> <![CDATA[Orchestrator Web Service and Permissions]]> Tue, 07 Mar 2017 08:58:19 +0000 Talmier Hi All

I’ve created a run book that converts IRs to SRs and linked this to a task that can be launched from the Service Manager Console

It uses the Orchestrator Remote Tools 2.51 to launch the run book, which works when run as a Domain administrator

However when run as a non Domain Administrator I get

The Run book could not be started

To try and troubleshoot the process I’ve given the non domain administrator the following permissions

Service Manager Administrators

Orchestrator Administrators

Yet the task still seems to fail

Does anyone have any advice or experience?

The .exes are executed from a network share

]]> <![CDATA[Copy an AD user]]> Mon, 12 Dec 2016 22:07:43 +0000 Michael I have tried multiple different versions of copying an AD user to another. All seems to fail. We are using Orchestrator Runbooks. My latest attempt is the script below run as a .Net script from a runbook. It works through powershell as it is supposed to. However when you test the runbook, it runs without errors but it does not copy the user groups.

Invoke-Command -ComputerName localhost -ScriptBlock {

import-module ActiveDirectory

$SName =”{Template from “initialize data”}”
$DName =”{SAMaccountName from “initialize data”}”

$K = Get-ADUser -Identity $SName -Properties memberOf
foreach($group in $K.memberof)
{Add-ADGroupMember -Identity $group -Member $DName}



Regardless of the above info, my end objective is that each department has a template user. We want to copy the template user and move the user to the proper OU as well as copy the default groups to the newly created user. I have been working on trying this for about a week now and just cannot seem to get it. If someone has a walkthrough I can follow (step by step) that would be outstanding.
