Sometimes you may need to schedule a Runbook to run at a specific time. I advise you to use SCOJobRunner.
What is SCOJobRunner?
This is a command-line tool that you can use to quickly start runbooks. You can invoke runbooks for Orchestrator 2012 and higher.
If you want to try SCOJobRunner, first download it from codeplex: http://orchestrator.codeplex.com/releases/view/87873
How to use SCOJobRunner?
Simply run scojobrunner.exe and you will get the syntax.
It also works with Orchestrator 2016. OK, now let’s imagine I want to schedule my runbook.
First, you must have the name of your Runbook. If your runbook is located in a subfolder, you must also indicate the name of this subfolder.
Next, open the task scheduler and create a basic task:
In this example, « SCCM » is my subfolder, and « Export_Devices » is the name of my RunBook.
To finish, you just have to run the task and SCOJobRunner.exe will start your runbook.
