Runbook server restart

JustBry 1 Reputation point

Hi folks, Got an issue where I have multiple Orchestrator runbook servers where various runbooks are running, server is restarted (due to some activity like patching) and when the server comes back up, the runbooks are not automatically started (Orchestrator services start automatically fine/without issue). I have to start them manually - this was not always the case and seems to have started some time mid to late last year. Any thoughts? Thank you!

    Hi @JustBry

    if you have multiple Runbook Servers for one Orchestrator instance. The Runbooks should switch to another Runbook Servers, if the limit of the Runbooks for the other Server is not reached (how-to-configure-runbook-throttling).
    If a Runbook Server Service starts, it needs a connection to the SQL Server with the Orchestrator DB. Is/was this SQL Server running and available during the restart of the Runbook Server?
    Anny errors or warnings in the tab "Events" in Runbook Designer? Or any hints in the logs (C:\ProgramData\Microsoft System Center 2012\Orchestrator\RunbookService.exe\Logs)?
