Orchestrator Licencing

Hi,

We have used older revisions of Orchestrator in the past, I had thought Orchestrator was end of life after 2019. But now I see a new 2022 version.

Is it possible to license Orchestrator individually?
We don't need any other system Centre products and Orchestrator seems bundled in with system Centre data center licensing?

Are there any other server/agent based Microsoft automation products? as Power Automated see aligned with the end user, it would be good if a 'server' version was released that you could schedule and run un -attended tasks accross multiple servers.

Hi,

Thanks for posting in Microsoft MECM Q&A forum.

Per my experience, System Center components, such as Orchestrator/Operations Manager or Configuration Manager, can't be purchased separately. The System Center Server Management components are part of an integrated offering to create and manage private cloud environments. They are available only as part of System Center Standard and System Center Datacenter server management licenses.

For more information about licensing, please refer to:

Hope it helps. Thanks for your time.

Best regards,
Simon

Thanks for your reply.

Do you know anything about datacenter licensing, If I wanted 1 Orchestrator management server on a VM and Runbook agent on 3 servers would I need 3 datacenter licenses?
