5.0 out of 5 stars Delivers the informatoin that other books were not able to 25 Feb. 2014
By James Boller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are working with System Center and using the Orchestrator product, this is the book for you. This is not for the beginner, this is for those whom have already configured a base-line environment and are ready to explore the vast capabilities that are SCOrch. With more than enough Scenarios to get you thinking and started, this is where you want to be when you are ready to deep-dive Orchestrator.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book on Basics on System Center Orchestrator 3 Dec. 2013
By Markus Klein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This Book is like expected "a cookbook", which means from my Point of view: it's a great book for beginners but it's not a deep dive book. Therefore I would clearly advice it to every Administrator that is responsible for his Orchestrator Environment, who Needs to maintain it and is responsible for it. It describes very clear how Orchestrator works, how to design and optimize Runbooks and how to make sure you are able to do your daily work.

Great work! Its worth reading it!
3.0 out of 5 stars Basic intro into Orchestrator 9 Jan. 2014
By mfrankovic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is a great entry level material for learning Orchestrator although some examples and book recommendations could go deeper into the technology. After this one reader should go and purchase some more deeper technical material to get better understanding on how the technologies Works underneath the covers. I would recommend it for beginners.

2.0 out of 5 stars Basic at it's best 9 Oct. 2013
By Mr System Center - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
For me this book is a disappointment. This has nothing to do with the authors since these are experienced people. But it has eveything to do with the approach the whole Cookbook series uses. For other technologies in the same series of books it works but here it doesn't.

The book is targeted at daily usage of Orchestrator as shown with the 'recipes'. However, I would like to see more in-depth information of the why, how and the mechanics of those very same recipes. And that information is too basic for me.

Also the overall mechanics of Orchestrator isn't discussed at all or at a very basic level at it's best.

Anyone looking for a good book with in-depth information about Orchestrator, don't buy this book but go for System Center 2012 - Orchestrator Unleashed. When you don't want to take the deep dive but just want some examples of Runbooks, this book might be good for you. But don't ask too many questions since they won't be answered.
