Issue with SCOM 2016 IP for Orchestrator 2016

So I’ve been away for awhile working on new things (HGS, you should take a look at it) and haven’t been able to mess with Orchestrator for some time.  After watching a TechReady video I got inspired to build out a runbook for integrating workflows into HPSM and SCOM using Azure.

Self Post

So I think it might be time to update my banner to 2016 since I am now running the full 2016 System Center suite.  This doesn’t mean that what I wrote or write will only work on 2016.  If that is the case it will be denoted on the post.  I also want to take this time to re-iterate again that I am an Microsoft employee and I advocate for Microsoft products.  It is my opinion that they are some of the best in class products and I am proud of what we do and our mission at Microsoft.  Again though, my posts are purely to help out the community and to ease adoption of the products I work with on a daily basis.  They are in no way official support from Microsoft but I do try my best to be as accurate as possible.  I hope everyone out there is automating away and making everyone’s life easier and more enjoyable at work.

Happy automating.

FSOC Calendar Republished

Go and check out the updated dynamic FSOC calendar post.  I have updated it with directions on how to create the calendar in SharePoint and clarified a few pieces with additional screenshots so hopefully this will make it easier to create this project yourself.

FSOC Calendar Post Unpublished For Now

I decided to unpublish the Automated FSOC Calendar post for now.  I noticed that there where some errors that could cause confusion and I have SharePoint running in my lab so I wanted to add those details into the post as well.  Don’t worry, It will be back soon.  Sorry for the confusion.
