The best way to learn is by doing. Dan walks through the creation of a simple runbook as a starting point for automating tasks using Orchestrator.
- [Instructor] In this demonstration,…I'll step through how to create a basic runbook…using Orchestrator.…Here in the Orchestrator Runbook Designer,…in the left-hand panel,…I've already got Runbook selected.…And we can see that we've got a number…of folders that already exist.…However, before we build a new runbook,…I'm going to right-click on Runbooks…and choose New Folder,…and I'm going to call it Exercises.…Then, what I'm going to do is…right-click on the Exercises folder…and I'll choose New, Runbook.…That adds the New Runbook tab up here, at the top…but I want to give it a better name than that,…so I'm going to right-click on it and choose Rename.…
And it's going to prompt me to check out the runbook,…so I'll choose Yes…and then, I'm going to call it Pinger…because we're going to use a couple of activities…to verify whether a machine is responding over the network.…So, before we actually do this in a production environment,…we always want to make sure that we carefully think about…what we're trying to accomplish with the runbook,…
