Would it be possible to change this to a Dynamically Populated group containing all servers running Orchestrator services so it updates the list of servers automatically?

Is it possible to create Dynamic Group, based on some particular Service running on multiple servers? and if those services are found on any servers, it has to be monitored.


Example: Services which Starts with name Orchaestrator

According to the above example, if we find any Orchaestrator related service running on any server, it should become part of that particular Dynamic group .

If it is possible, please let me know how to accomplish this?

It is possible but you are overthinking this.

The proper way of achieving this is :
- Create an "Orchestrator Server" class
- Create a discovery for that class. Most efficient way of doing it is using registry. There is an entry in the registry for every service, or you may find a more relevant registry key under hklm\software
- Create a service monitor and target it at the Orchestrator Server class
- done.

Unfortunately, the two first steps are not doable from the console. You can however use tools such as MP Author to achieve this if you do not feel comfortable with "real" authoring in visual studio : https://kevinholman.com/2014/11/12/using-the-free-silect-mpauthor-to-create-a-class-discover-and-monitor-a-service/

Also if by "orchestrator" you mean System Center Orchestrator, you don't need to author anything : Microsoft already provides an MP which includes services monitors : https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=54058

As per CyrilAzoulay suggestion, you can import System Center Orchestrator MP for discovery servers running Orchestrator services.
Microsoft System Center 2016 Management Pack for Orchestrator contains two management packs, Microsoft.systemCenter.orchestrator.library.mp and Microsoft.systemcenter.2016.Orchestrator.mp. If you want to use its discovery only without monitor, you may import Microsoft.systemCenter.orchestrator.library.mp into your SCOM.
