I am working at a customer that has a sharepoint 2013 muli server farm hosting several web applications but not all of them require Nintex workflow.
The scenario i have is that we currently have 2 wfe's and 2 app servers. Nintex is currently activated on both wfe's which is fine. We are just about to deploy a new web application which we have found will require an additional 2 wfe's due to heavy load. This new web app does not require Nintex wf so we were planning on directing traffic for this new web app to these 2 new wfe's that does not have Nintex wf activated.
Ihave read that Nintex wf needs to be installed on all the wfe's or does it only need to be installed on the wfe's that need the Nintex service?
Thanks in advance
Solved! Go to Solution.
Nintex Workflow has no ability to be only installed on a subset of WFE's. It is globally deployed throughout the entire far, WFE's and APP servers.
You could build a new Sharepoint Farm for your new app that needs heavy load and isolate it for your first farm.
If this alternative is not useful for you, you could ask to your Nintex Territory Manager to change your Nintex subscription to the new pricing model that does not depend on your WFE server quantity, it depends on your workflows quantity. This subscription includes new Nintex products and features for free. Write to your Territory manager if you know him/her. If you don't know who is, I can help you with that, just send me a private messages.
