  • Workflow manager when upgrading from SP2013 to SP2016

    • Hello,
      We are upgrading our SharePoint 2013 farm to SharePoint 2016.  I was wondering if I need to move the WFInstanceManagementDB, WFManagementDB and WFResourceManagementDB to the new 2016 SQL server or do I just create new databases when I install WorkFlow Manager on the Server for SharePoint 2016?
    • I would prefer to create a new Workflow manager with new DBS...

    • I have Sharepoint 2016 Farm on Windows Server 2016 with SQL Server 2016. I read here that its not supported yet. Any idea when it will be supported or it will not be supported at all?
    • As of now, i am not sure about it. No ETA from MSFT.
  • When does Workflow Manger supports SQL2016 and Windows Server 2016?

    • Hello,
      You mentionned: "SQL Server 2016 Not supported yet."
      Is it on the roadmap? If yes. When can we expect it?

  • The CU3 is installed already

    • CU3 is installed during the initial Workflow Manager step.  If you try to install it again like these instructions say, you get a misleading error.
    • I meant CU3 and the Workflow Manager CLIENT is installed already.
    • Register-SPWorkflowService failed so after looking at other articles on the web, I did the following and was successful:
      1) iisreset
      2) added both URL for my Site Collection and Central Admin to the hosts file c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts like 127.0.0.1 <centraladmin> and 127.0.0.1 <sitecollection>
      3) Get-SPWorkflowServiceApplicationProxy | Remove-SPServiceApplicationProxy
      4) Register-SPWorkflowService -SPSite "http://<sitecollectio>" -WorkflowHostUri "http://<centraladmin>ms-dev01:12291"  -force -AllowOauthHTTP
      NOTE that I did NOT specify a port or /sites/workflow in step 4
      
      I'm a developer so best of luck...
    • Not done yet...
      Now even though SP Designer shows SP 2013 Workflow, you can't publish it because you get the following error: App Management Shared Service Proxy is not installed
      So go to Central Admin, Manager Service Applications, and create an App Management Service and make sure it's started.
    • I love Microsoft...
    • Hi Master of tiny universe, thanks a lot to raise all the concerns. I am just clarifying a couple of things, this is scenario-based installation( single server dedicated farm not sharepoint on it). 
      1) if you install the WFM it will include the WFM client as well, but you have to install the WFM client on the SharePoint Server. if you installing the WFM on SharePoint server then no need of WFM client separately. 
      2)I am not sure why you adding the Host file entries.
      3) that is one of the Requirement(App Management and Site subscription services having hidden dependency), which never published. I include the Tips section in my guide and re-uploaded so that no body miss it.
      
      For Cu3, I am not sure because in my case i have to install it separately for WFM.
      
      Thanks for your time and feed back.
