I have a farm of 4 servers ( 2 WFE and 2 App ) and on both the App servers i would like to stop the workflow timer service.

What would be the impact of that?


Rule for SharePoint Workflow Timer service is:

  • Start the Web Application Service on all servers that have the Workflow Timer Service running.


  • Disable the Workflow Timer Service on servers that are not running the Web Application service.

If you stop the Workflow timer but Web applcation service is running then you will not run properly.
