System Center Update

Upgrade to System Center Orchestrator 2016

System Center Orchestrator should be the first Product to upgrade to 2016, so we also will start with SCO.

The Upgrade is straight forward and an easy one, but we have some pre-checks to make sure everything runs smooth.

First we will make a small Health Check to make sure SCO is doing fine, afterwards we proceed with our Backups followed by uninstall 2012 R2 and Installing 2016.

Lets go.

SCO Health Check

We normally use the “Orchestrator Health Checker” to get a quick overview of our environment. You an download the small Tool here:  http://scorch.codeplex.com/releases/view/99063

So take a look at your running and queued Runbooks and make sure nothing important is sill running or not to many Runbooks are in Queue.

After we have made sure that our SCO is healthy, we can take the next step.

System Center

System Center 2016 is here

 

We have been waiting a long time, Microsoft released the new System Center 2016 suite nearly a month ago.

A few days after, also Update Rollup 1 has been released.

As I am mainly related to SCDPM, SCSM and SCO, I will show you all the news around these three Products

So lets take a look, what’s new with System Center 2016.

Service Manager 2016

  • Faster SCCM and Active Directory Connector
