Can you install Workflow Manager 1.0 on Central Admin App Server Machine in 3-tier SharePoint Farm? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have just realised when looking at doing a Workflow that 2013 Workflows not available (you need to install Workflow Manager Farm). I understand why from a tenant installation perspective, but we are on-premise.

    Can someone tell me if I can install Workflow Manager 1.0 (seen you have to now install WM 1.0 Refresh version) on the Central Admin App Server Machine in a 3 tier SharePoint farm. 3 WFE, 4 APP Servers, 1 DB Server and 1 DB Analysis Services Server.

    I did test on a test farm 1WFE, 1 APP Server (with CA) and 1 Database Server. We are getting issues with the WFE Server having issues booting up or losing connection - possibly faulty network card. This may in no way be related to the install, but just in case. 

    Any help appreciated.
