Nintex Workflow doesn't use Nintex Workflow Manager and will always use the builtin SharePoint engine. Thus there is no way I know to configure which server is executing workflows. They will use the SharePoint timer service that is executed on SharePoint web front ends.
Before I see this post, I found that all our Nintex workflows were built on the SharePoint 2010 Workflow platform type when I check them in SharePoint Designer in our environment SharePoint 2016. So, I am curious (1) the Nintex workflow does not use the Workflow Manager, (2) How about the state machine and looping, which are implemented in the SharePoint 2013 workflow with the help of Workflow manager? Does it capable in SharePoint 2010 workflow platform. (3) Does Nintex workflow has their own feature to support the state machine and looping on top of SharePoint 2010 workflow?
Hi Pyae Win,
(1) yes, Nintex Workflow does not use the Workflow Manager, even if it is present in the farm
(3) State machine is a totally compatible feature in Nintex Workflow 2010 where it has an own action for it. Used it a lot of times.
Hope this brings some clarification
