There is a new integration pack for Orchestrator on the horizon. It is free and developed by Russ Slaten and Anders Bengtsson. The IP covers administration tasks for OpsMgr 2012. Read more about the IP here.
This Integration Pack provides extended PowerShell Script Execution capabilities for the Orchestrator (executed from and against both x86 and x64 OSs). And again this IP is also developed by Charles Joy. The IP adds two activities:
- Execute PS Script
- Execute PS Script – Global
Download the IP with user guide here.
Once again thank you Charles for these great Integration Packs. This IP provides extended Runbook Logging functions for Orchestrator and MSSQL with the following features:
- Get Log Data
Once again it comes with a guide. Free download from here.
Another download provided by Charles Joy which will help you in better integration System Center 2012 components. Let’s see the description of this download:
The Orchestrator Extensibility Kit for SC Operations Manager includes examples of how to extend SC Operations Manager using both the Operations Manager and Orchestrator SDKs. The C# code and compiled DLL included here offer four activities to be used within Orchestrator against Operations Manager. Two of these activities can be used to automatically create and/or delete notification subscriptions based on an existing Notification Channel. The other two activities work against the Operations Manager database tracking existing Pending Agent Installs for Approval and the provide the ability to Approve them.
The download comes into a zip file that contains implementation and usage guide. Download it here.
This integration pack by is developed by Oskar Landman. He is an MVP working for Inovativ. So what actually this IP offers:
Class – Get Class Instances – Takes a class (Internal Name) and retrieves all class instances. Can be filtered by using the filtering options in the activity. Parameters:
Class – Get GroupClass Instances – Takes a group (Internal Name) and retrieves all members of the group.
SCOM MaintenanceMode – Start Group – Takes a group (Internal Name) and retrieves all members of the group and place them in maintenance mode.
SCOM MaintenanceMode – Stop Group – Takes a group (Internal Name) and retrieves all members of the group and turn maintenance mode off.
SCOM MaintenanceMode – Start Object – Takes an object and places the object in maintenance mode.
SCOM MaintenanceMode – Stop Object – Takes an object and turns maintenance mode off.
So as you can see definitely very useful IP. Thank you Oskar for sharing this with the community.
