Here’s my first System Center 202 R2 Configuration Manager automated task using System Center 2012 R2 Orchestrator

  • Download the required Integration Pack from this link from the Microsoft website.
  • Download the Windows Installer XML (WiX) Toolset (at least v3.5) from this website
  • Install the WiX Toolset
  • Open the System Center 2012 R2 Orchestrator Deployment Manager and Import the Integration Packs

  • Right-click on the Integration Pack and select Deploy IP to Runbook Server or Runbook Designer. This executes the Integration Pack Deployment Wizard

  • By adding the ConfigMgr Integration Pack, we have new activities pertaining to ConfigMgr available in our Runbook Designer

  • To test, let’s now create a new Rubook with only the Create Collection action. Here are the parameters of that Create Collection action

  • Run this Runbook. Check in Log History that it succeeded
