Chatroom Buzz


[21:44:36] <mjl135> Isn’t Orchestrator free?

[21:47:11] <Josh_Atwell> ###talk about difference between install and appliance

[21:47:42] <Poshoholic> ## Windows WF 3.x or 4.0?

[21:49:38] <Josh_Atwell> #### I assume that if you are using the appliance you’ll need some other windows system to use the PowerShell module?

[21:50:01] <JHofferle> ## What directories should be excluded from Virus Scanning? I just started playing with it and McAfee is really beating up orchestrator.

[21:57:42] <Josh_Atwell> ### so the PowerShell plugin is intended to fill in gaps of the other plugins or designed to allow people to reuse their existing work?

[21:58:51] <VERN__> ## is vsphere doing the work or what component does the API connect to?

[22:07:51] <JHofferle> ## Can workflows be configured to run automatically when certain events occur?

[22:07:52] <mjl135> ## Are their built in work flows?

[22:09:08] <vnoob> ##### Is there anything at CES you guys are exciting about? 🙂

[22:11:25] <Josh_Atwell> ###is there a repository for people to go out and get workflows?

[22:14:12] <MarkDW> ## Is there any version control for workflows?

[22:15:26] <Josh_Atwell> ### so how do you test your workflows…is there a built in debugger?

[22:15:50] <MarkDW> ## Is there RBAC? Groups that can run workflows, design workflows, etc.

[22:18:33] <Poshoholic> ## Wait, but he didn’t answer the debugging part.

[22:20:51] <JHofferle> ## Are there workflows for managing View? Like Refresh/Recompose operations?
