Scheduled Workflows run multiple time internally

Dear Nintex,


we have issues with our scheduled workflows on our Productive environment. Workflows are delayed and when they run it took a lot of time to complete. Finally the workflows will complete there actions but a lot of actions are performed multiple times. (Up to 4 times, while we expect to have it running 1 time).


On our test environment these workflows only performs the configured actions once. Difference between our Test and Productive environment is the size of the farm.

On Productive we have 2 WFE and 2 App servers. On Test we have 1 WFE and 1 App server.


I already removed the Microsoft Sharepoint Foundation Workflow Timer service on both app servers (1 is hosting Central Admin and 1 is dedicated Search), still the SharePoint foundation Web Application service is running on these servers.
Now the SharePoint Foundation Workflow Timer Service (and the SharePoint Foundation Web Application servcice) is only running on the WFE servers.


The Nintex workflow service is configure to run on the Application server hosting the Central Admin, which is not one of the WFE so no SharePoint Foundation Workflow timer service is running there.


What is the best configuration for the timer services regarding nintex Workflows. I have a strange feeling that both WFE are picking up the scheduled workflow. How can we check that?


Any advice is much appreciated,

thanks in advance.
