    Error "<Workflow Name> Failed to Run" in Workflow History

    Summary
    When running a workflow, the following error might appear in the Nintex workflow history page, even though the workflow completes successfully: Failed to Run

    Solution

    Option 1

    Locate one Web Front End server which has Web Application service running, run the following PowerShell command to copy workflow-related configuration from the web.config to the configuration database so it will be available from every server in the Farm.
    $webapp = Get-SPWebApplication -identity http://<web app name>
    
    $webapp.UpdateWorkflowConfigurationSettings()

    Option 2

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

    Option 3

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