I scheduled a site workflow to run at 3:15pm everyday to update the "Date" field in SharePoint List, but it has never run. It only run when I started it manually by clicking on "Start" button to initiate the workflow (see attached). I got the workflow notification error "A scheduled workflow failed to run". I followed the instructions on this article "Scheduled workflows and the Nintex Workflow Scheduler timer job", and my System Admin did below steps:
1. NWAdmin.exe -o UninstallTimerJob -job ScheduledWorkflows
2. NWAdmin.exe -o InstallTimerJob -job ScheduledWorkflows -url http://mywebappurl
But the workflow still hasn't run automatically. Did I miss anything?
Hi Van Vo
You solved your issue by reinstalling the timer job with a web applications url.
NWAdmin.exe -o InstallTimerJob -job ScheduledWorkflows -url http://mywebappurl
Is this url a SharePoint web application's url on front end server? Doesn't it matter which of the web applications it is?
Thanks for your help.
You just have to use the NWAdmin.exe with one of the web applications running on a web frontend server. If this is used with more than one web application you will get more than one Workflow Timer Job. That leads to issues and should be avoided. Each scheduled workflow will start as often as you have installed unique timer jobs.
