Microsoft has released Technical Preview 5 for System Center 2016 (and Windows Server 2016) some weeks ago (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/evaluate-system-center-techn).

I can find no official statement from Microsoft sites until now, but some other sources like ZDNet.com declare it as "feature complete"". I believe it's the final version before RTM as well and not too much changes will be made for the final release.


So, how Orchestrator and Service Management Automation (SMA) will look like?

So, it's still recommended to keep your Orchestrator DB small....

If you want to to turn off the Logging of Activity specific or Common Published Data for all Runbooks you can manage this with a SQL-Query setting the columns LogCommonData and LogSpecificData to 0. But this settings will take no affect without check out and check in each Runbook until the version is incremented. The below SQL statement will increase the version for the concerned Runbooks.
