Hi m c
Thanks for your reply. I have tried adding a delayof (5 min), and still receiving a "Workflow Errored" email saying, "workflow failed to start" as follows.
The only change now is, i am not receiving another email of successfull completion of the site workflow. So, no duplication of the workflow, but still no proper execution of the workflow.
Here’s the solution Nintex recommends…have not used it, so cannot verify.
Thanks for the link m c, as the link prompted me to check the other info and came across the "Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Workflow Timer Service". As this service needs to be running only on to the WFE server, but in my case it was running on both APP and WFE. Stopping the service on APP server has fixed the issue.
Removing the Workflow Timer Service from app servers will work, as will running the script below from one of your Web Front Ends. The script below will make the Workflow Configuration settings available within the SharePoint Configuration database for access by that web application. Without running the script, only servers configured with the Web Application Service will have those settings readily available.
