Terminating the workflow doesn't terminate the workflow

Question asked by jim.blain on Dec 21, 2016

I have a Site Workflow running in SharePoint 2010.

 

The workflow has had an error and I have attempted to terminate it using the "terminate this workflow" link on the Workflow Progress page.The page immediately changes the Status from "Running" to "Cancelled" and the workflow history is populated with "Workflow [workflow name] was cancelled by..."

However, when I look at the Workflow Progress page again, it displays running.

 

I have also checked the Workflows in Progress report and it still shows up there.

 

The workflow does not show up in the Purge Workflow History any longer and does not show up on the Workflows page.

 

How can I get this workflow to actually terminate?

 

Thank you.
