This is the 3rd post in a 3-part series on deploying VMs in Azure using System Center Service Manager and Service Management Automation (SMA). In this post we’ll cover using the Service Manager Self-Service Portal to trigger an SMA Runbook which deploys a new VM in Azure.

Part I: Preparing your VM for upload, uploading it to Azure, and configuring Azure

Part II: Deploying your VM in PowerShell and SMA

Part III: Deploying your VM using the Service Manager Self-Service Portal

Summary

In Part I we uploaded a custom image to Azure and in Part II we created an SMA Runbook to deploy a new virtual machine using that image. The steps below will take you through configuring System Center Service Manager to launch an SMA Runbook which will deploy a Virtual Machine in Azure.

Prerequisites

  1. Install the Service Manager Authoring Tool on a workstation
  2. Install Windows Azure PowerShell on the machine where your SMA Runbook will be launched (configured in Part II)
  3. Install the Service Manager Console on the machine where your SMA Runbook will be launched.
  4. Install SMA PowerShell on the Service Manager Management Server where the workflow will be run. You can install this from the Orchestrator installation CD, just launch setup and it’s on the bottom.
  5. Add the workflow account in Service Manager to the smaAdminGroup (local group) on the SMA Server. You can get this account by opening the Service Manager console and going to Administration\Security\Run As Accounts\Workflow Account.
  6. Download the Azure Settings File and place it somewhere on the SMA Server. In order for scripts to connect to Azure we need to download an Azure settings file for authentication. You can download this file from the following URL: https://windows.azure.com/download/publishprofile.aspx.
  7. Get all of the parameters needed to execute the SMA Runbook manually through SMA. Part II has steps to get these.

Modify the SMA Runbook

The SMA Runbook we created in Part II will mostly work as-is but we’ll want to make several modifications so it works better with Service Manager. The main modification adds to the end of the script so that it will set the Service Manager activity to Completed. If we don’t do this the Virtual Machine will get deployed but the Service Request will remain In Progress. If you plan on using the SMA Runbook without Service Manager then instead of modifying the existing one you can create a new one.

  • Logon to the Service Management Portal and click on Automation\Runbooks
  • Scroll down to the DeployVMInAzure Runbook and select it
  • Click Author, Draft, and Edit Runbook
  • Replace the script with the one below
workflow DeployVMInAzure { param( $azureSettingsFile, $azureAccountName, $imageName, $vmName, $instanceSize, $adminUserName, $adminPassword, $domain, $domainUserName, $domainPassword, $affinityGroup, $networkName, $azureStorageAccountName, $subnetName, $activityID, $smManagementServer ) #Set Instance Size if ($instanceSize -eq "A0") { $instanceSize = 'ExtraSmall' } elseif ($instanceSize -eq "A1") { $instanceSize = 'Small' } elseif ($instanceSize -eq "A2") { $instanceSize = 'Medium' } elseif ($instanceSize -eq "A3") { $instanceSize = 'Large' } elseif ($instanceSize -eq "A4") { $instanceSize = 'ExtraLarge' } inlinescript { #Import Azure PowerShell Module Import-Module Azure #Remove Existing Azure Sessions Remove-AzureAccount -Name $Using:azureAccountName -Force #Import Azure Settings File Import-AzurePublishSettingsFile -PublishSettingsFile ($Using:azureSettingsFile).Replace("\\","\") #Set Azure Subscription Get-AzureSubscription | Set-AzureSubscription -currentstorageaccountname $Using:azureStorageAccountName #Increment VM Name $i = 0 foreach ($vm in Get-AzureVM) { if ($vm.InstanceName.Contains($Using:vmName)) { [int]$increment = $vm.InstanceName.SubString($Using:vmName.Length) if ($increment -gt $i) { $i = $increment } } } $i++ $vmName = $Using:vmName + $i #Create New Azure Cloud Service New-AzureService -ServiceName $vmName -AffinityGroup $Using:affinityGroup #Create Azure VM if ($Using:domain) { New-AzureVMConfig -Name $vmName -InstanceSize $Using:instanceSize -ImageName $Using:imageName | Add-AzureProvisioningConfig -WindowsDomain -Password $Using:adminPassword -JoinDomain $Using:domain -Domain $Using:domain -DomainUserName $Using:domainUserName -DomainPassword $Using:domainPassword -AdminUsername $Using:adminUserName | Set-AzureSubnet $Using:subnetName | New-AzureVM -ServiceName $vmName -VNetName $Using:networkName } else { New-AzureVMConfig -Name $vmName -InstanceSize $Using:instanceSize -ImageName $Using:imageName | Add-AzureProvisioningConfig -Windows -AdminUsername $Using:adminUserName -Password $Using:adminPassword | Set-AzureSubnet $Using:subnetName | New-AzureVM -ServiceName $vmName -VNetName $Using:networkName } #Set SM Activity to Completed if ($Using:activityID) { #Connect to SM $smDir = (Get-ItemProperty 'hklm:/software/microsoft/System Center/2010/Service Manager/Setup').InstallDirectory Import-Module ($smDir + "\Powershell\System.Center.Service.Manager.psd1") $sm = New-SCManagementGroupConnection -computerName $Using:smManagementServer #Get SM Class $class = Get-SCClass -name 'Custom.Example.Azure.DeployVM' #Get SM Class Instance $instance = Get-SCClassInstance -class $class -filter ('Id -eq {0}' -f $Using:activityID) #Update Activity to Completed $instance.Status = "ActivityStatusEnum.Completed" Update-SCSMClassInstance -Instance $instance } } }
  • Publish the Runbook
