Parent Workflow aborting - error message = Failed to Start

Question asked by robert.perkins@suntrust.com on Jul 7, 2016

I am having a problem with a Parent/Child Workflow in Nintex Workflow for SharePoint.

 

The Parent is a list workflow that captures  several dates and then Queries a Project Master file(another List)

and processes the queried items with a web service action utilizing the "StartWorkflowOnListItem" method.

 

I have a pause of 5 minutes built into the child workflow, which is another list workflow.

 

The Parent workflow processes fine up to a limit of @ 75 items.

If more than 75 items are read by the parent Query, the Parent workflow terminates with a message of

"failed to start". in about 3 minutes....before the first child workflow starts due to the pause of 5 minutes.

 

I am wondering if there is a limit on the number of child workflows that might be handled in a queue to start?

 

Any assistance or insight would be greatly appreciated.
