This article describes the issues that are fixed in Update Rollup 2 for Microsoft System Center Orchestrator 2022. This article also contains the installation instructions for this update. 

Issues that are fixed

  • Monitoring Activities: In SCO 2022, certain monitoring activities (Monitor Disk Space, Monitor Event Log, Monitor Process, Monitor WMI, Monitor Service) were experiencing issues, which have now been successfully resolved.

  • Initial load time of the navigation tree on the Web Console reduced with optimizations made in the API authorization cache. On large SCO instances, the navigation tree would sometimes show only subset of entries. However, with the optimization, all entries are rendered. Ensure to follow the steps below to reflect these changes:

    a. Locate web.config file at path 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft System Center\Orchestrator\WebApi' and add timeout environment variable.

    You may choose to increase this timeout if all runbooks and folders are still not loading properly.
    <environmentVariable name="AuthCacheConfig:AuthCacheComputationTimeout" value="900" />

    b. Ensure to backup your Orchestrator database to prevent any data loss. Download the sql script, open SQL Server Management Studio, connect to your Orchestrator database, and execute the script.

Other Improvements and Features

  • Web Console Filtering: Users can now take advantage of powerful filtering system, enhancing their experience in both the job view and instance view.

  • Web API folder now includes the Swagger (also known as OpenAPI spec - Orchestrator.WebAPI-22.1.0.json) describing the API. Customers can use it to auto-generate/author REST clients or to browse the API on a swagger rendered similar to this.

 Known issues & limitations

  • Identifiers are shown instead of Activity Names on the Runbook Tester canvas and Log View area. The Activity Name is included as a property in the Log View area.

  • Service Manager (SM) console doesn't detect Orchestrator 2022 installation because the Connector for the new Web API is yet to be released.

  • Runbook designer might crash while updating existing runbooks or creating new runbooks with some Integration packs. Install the Hotfix  for SCO 2022 Orchestrator UR2 that fixes this issue.

  • Deployment Manager might crash after installing UR2. Workaround: Copy C:\Program Files\Microsoft System Center\Orchestrator\Management Server\Deployment Manager\OrchestratorRemotingService.exe to ​  C:\Windows\SysWOW64\OrchestratorRemotingService.exe​

Installation instructions for Orchestrator Update Rollup

Download the update packages that Microsoft Update provides for each computer. Microsoft Update provides the appropriate updates according to the components that are installed on each computer. Or manually download from the Microsoft Update Catalog. 

To manually install the update packages, run the following command from an elevated command prompt:

msiexec.exe /p <packagename>

For example, to install the System Center 2022 UR2 package for Orchestrator Management Server (KB 5033099), run the following command:

msiexec.exe /l*v  "sco-mgmt-server-update-log.txt" /p KB5033099_Microsoft.SystemCenter.Orchestrator.ManagementServer_x64.msp

 After the Orchestrator updates are installed, reconfigure the Orchestrator database by using the existing database according to these guidelines.

Uninstalling UR2

  • The Runbook Server, Runbook Designer, and Management Server UR2 packages can be uninstalled using Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs > View installed Updates

  • The Web API UR package can’t be uninstalled. We recommend uninstalling the Web API and reinstalling it with the SCO 2022 RTM installer.

  • The Web Console package can be uninstalled by invoking the following command from an Administrator PowerShell:

msiexec /l*v <uninstall-logfile.txt> /package '{C6E4AF6F-8EB1-462B-96A2-47929D6E8DD5}' /uninstall '{<patch_code>}' MSSCORCH_SERVICES_ACCOUNT='1' MSSCORCH_SERVICES_PASSWORD='1' MSSCORCH_WEBAPI_URL=<webapi_url>

The webapi_url should be the full URL (including the port) of the Web API endpoint.
