I have a SharePoint 2013 server farm with a web server (lets say SERVER-web) and an app server (let's say SERVER-app). The Workflow Management Site is installed on both, under IIS. They each have an https and http binding, and each have IP Address and Domains set to allow access to local and to each other.

Is it normal that the site is in Stopped on my app server?? I ask because I am running into an error when I open the UI page to view Workflows (Items > Workflows). The correlation ID tells me it's a problem with an IP address not permitted to access the site. However nothing has changed in that regard. In troubleshooting I noticed that the one Workflow Management Site is stopped but don't want to simply start it without fully understanding it.

  • did you install the workflow Manager on both Server and both Server are part of single WFmanager farm? – Waqas Sarwar MVP May 24 '16 at 19:14
  • I did not perform this installation. I inherited it. Both servers are part of a single farm and the Workflow manager and Workflow site in IIS are installed on both servers. – Maureen May 24 '16 at 19:18
