A great new book has been released from Microsoft Press that covers Orchestrator and the creation of Runbooks very well. As a support professional I found the book to be informative from an architectural perspective, and full of great examples to get started.
From the posting on the Orchestrator TechNet blog site:
“We’re very excited to announce a free ebook offering from Microsoft Press: Microsoft System Center: Designing Orchestrator Runbooks (ISBN 9780735682986) by David Ziembicki, Aaron Cushner, Andreas Rynes and the System Center series editor, Mitch Tulloch. This is the first in a series of unique (and free) ebooks that bring System Center experts together to discuss designing, deploying, and troubleshooting some of the most complex and mission critical aspects of key System Center capabilities.”
“Our objective with this book is to provide a framework for runbook design and IT process automation to help you get the most out of System Center Orchestrator 2012 and to help you utilize Orchestrator in concert with the rest of the System Center for an enterprise-wide and systematic approach to process automation.”
