  • We are running into couple of problems with Orchestrator 2012.

    1. We imported SCVMM IP and we could not run "Create VM from Template". It always throws 2905 error. We checked and rechecked the file path, but with no use. We then switched to "Create VM from VM" and it works fine.

    2. Another thing we have been noticing is each work element in the run book runs four times. We don't have looping enabled. Any help is much appreciated.

  • Your best bet for support on SCO BETA Items is: and submit feedback here:

    For the Multi-Value issue, please see this:, it is likely a configuration issue with one of the objects generating multiple values, which downstream objects have to execute individually (one of the rules of pipeline runbook execution)
