I built a workflow with sharepoint designer to update an item in list A when an item is changed in list B. The workflow starts when the item is changed. Sometimes i get an error message: "Failed on Start (retrying)". I search in the worklfow history and found this message: "System.Workflow.ComponentModel.WorkflowTerminatedException" If i stop the workflow with this status (Failed...) and start it manually it works fine. Why i get the failed status? And why i just get sometimes this error?
I guess u are triggering workflow for same list item. Like, you are starting workflow when item changed and you are trying to change same list item with workflow again. So it returns that error.
