As the title states, may be this is a very basic question. In a SharePoint 2010 farm, the SharePoint Foundation Workflow Timer Service is enabled for all servers in the farm by default. However, I would like to know if it is just enabled on the WFEs and disabled on all other application servers is it going to impact anything or does it have any severe implications.
I have a 2010 farm with two custom made workflows deployed. The topology is this along with the status of the workflow timer service:-
2 WFE -Service Started
1 Search - Query & Indexing - Service Stopped
1 Other Service Applications - Service Stopped
