WARNING: Endpoint https://server:12290/ is not responding: The underlying connection was closed: Could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel.
I’ve set up a Workflow farm in DMZ with no outbound connection to the internet. The only allowed connection is inbound over port 443 using SSL certificates. Installing the Workflow farm on three servers for redundancy without error following the excellent guide by Spence Harbar:
- Workflow Manager Farms for SharePoint 2013 Part One: Core Concepts, High Availability, Certificate and SharePoint considerations
- Workflow Manager Farms for SharePoint 2013 Part Two: End to End Configuration using Auto Generated Certificates and NLB
- Workflow Manager Farms for SharePoint 2013 Part Three: Switching an existing farm to use Domain CA issued certificates
Using the same guides in a test environment over HTTP works very well. But running the same setup, installing in offline mode and only allowing Workflows over HTTPS fails. The port 12290 between the three servers are open, verified by using
telnet server-name 12290.
The custom application pool is running and has the same service account. The services (1) Service Bus Gateway, (2) Service Bus Message Broker, (3) Windows Fabric Host Service and (4) Workflow Manager Backend is running using the same account as the application pool.
The generated certificates have been exported from the first server and imported to the other two as trusted root certificates.
I’ve added the same certificate to SharePoint using PS:
$trustCert = Get-PfxCertificate "C:\Users\admin\Desktop\APPSRV-WF-Farm.cer" New-SPTrustedRootAuthority -Name "Workflow Manager Farm" -Certificate $trustCert
... And it's present in Central Admin > Security > Manage Trust
The WorkFlow Manager Farm looks OK if I run PS
Get-WFFarm but if I run
Get-WFFarmStatus I can clearly see an issue:

What are the next possible steps resolving the stopped
