Helo together,

I want to use Workflows in SharePoint 2013, thats why I had to configure the SharePoint 2013 Workflow Manager. But if i want to complete the wizard I get the following error message:

Windows Fabric configuration started. Running Windows Fabric deployment. Program C:\Program Files\Windows Fabric\bin\Fabric\Fabric.Code.1.0\FabricDeployer.exe exited with error: Windows Fabric deployment failed. DeploymentValidator: warning: The Fabric Data Collection Agent is disabled for this deployment. None of the declared nodes is for the current machine.

What was recommend to solve the problem:

Check host file. I did this, no problems.

At: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/23525439/sharepoint-workflow-manager-installation-failure-none-of-the-declared-nodes-is I found out, that I should check the ClusterManifest.*.xml but there are no Problems.

I could not solve the error, so I asked the question here. I have no idea to solve this.

It would be very nice if someone could help me! Thanks a lot!

did you comment the host file's entry for 127.0..? if yes then remove the entry and then try again. https://blog.tallan.com/2013/05/15/workflow-manager-installation-error-adding-host-to-service-bus-farm-2/

Another approach is completely remove the Workflow Manager and try to re install it.


  • Hey, thanks for your answer. 127.0.0 was allready commented with #. And the workflow manager still doesnt works. But if I delete the # before 127.0.. why should this solve the problem? Nov 18, 2015 at 21:56
  • i am not sure why, but i can think, your DNS is not properly working thats why it need the host header entry. but glad it fix the issue.
