Let's start creating our first Runbook!
We're going to start by choosing a task to be automated, and to choose it, we will pick a day-to-day administrative task that actually takes long to accomplish, and it consumes time from your IT administrators or helpdesk. We'll try to get it automated in order to reduce the time consumption of man working hours. It only makes sense to automate something if the time invested to automate it doesn't go over the time otherwise taken by that task and the number of times (or frequency) with which the task is executed; otherwise, it's a total waste of time.
So, for the task in hand, we will automate free disk space management by archiving logs that exist on the server on a specific location.
Remember, this is the very first Runbook you'll do, and we haven't yet deployed any integration...
