Q: How can I easily trigger Orchestrator runbooks from System Center Configuration Manager?

A: An extension for System Center Configuration Manager 2012 has been released with documentation available at the Microsoft website. Once installed, a configuration utility is executed that allows the user to specify the web service address of System Center Orchestrator 2012, the credentials to use and which runbooks should be available in System Center Configuration Manager. After configuration is complete, a new context menu item will be available within System Center Configuration Manager when selecting a computer to allow a runbook to be executed.
