Microsoft System Center OrchestratorOrchestrator Remote Tools 2.5 released to CodePlex now includes a new feature "Turbo" mode for the CLI launcher, which allows direct remote execution of the runbooks, without using a XML file at all, revealed Brunosa.

"Obviously there is no parameter validation then, but at least it provides a way to launch any remote runbook without first using the UI Generator," he said.

Orchestrator Remote Tools 2.5

Here is a changelog for v2.5:

  • New! Added an ORTXML parameter to specify an alternate XML template. This allows to save several XML templates for different policies in the same folder, and run them. You can still run the tool without specifying the ORTXML parameter, and it will look for the default policy_template.xml file, which is the name generated by the UI Generator.
  • New! "Turbo" in the CLI launcher : It is now possible to directly pass the path to the runbook to execute, and configuration information (web service server and port, database server and name)

    Note : Turbo mode requires remote access to the database, which is not the case when running in standard mode where all the information has already been stored in the database.
