Lab description

Using a Hybrid Worker Group in Azure Automation Account allows organizations to manage remote machines and execute automation tasks across both cloud and on-premises environments. The Hybrid Worker Group consists of one or more Hybrid Workers that are installed on machines outside of Azure and can execute PowerShell scripts, Python scripts, or graphical runbooks locally. This provides a scalable and flexible solution for running automation tasks in a hybrid environment, without the need to deploy Azure Virtual Machines for every task. The benefits of using Hybrid Worker Group include reduced latency, improved security, and easier management of on-premises machines.

This lab challenge assumes familiarity with the following concepts:

  • Understanding of Azure Automation offering
  • Working with Hybrid Workers in Azure Automation
  • Writing and understanding PowerShell script to interact with Active Directory

If you are unfamiliar with any of the above, Cloud Academy recommends completing the labs mentioned in the prerequisites before attempting this lab challenge.

This hands-on lab challenge will test your practical ability to interact with Azure Automation to satisfy a set of requirements in a production-like Azure environment. You will be presented with a task and set of requirements you must fulfill to pass the challenge.

This is a real environment, which means you can prove your knowledge in an applied way, substituting multiple choice questions for a dynamic performance-based exam situation.
