    1. creating new VM and installing only Workflow manager 1.0 on it

    2. Re registered it with sharepoint2013

  • Hi,
    1. Each server in the SharePoint Server 2013 farm must have the Workflow Manager Client installed.
    2. Make sure workflow initiator is not a system account
    3. workflow initiator must have a user profile

    Refer below link for more information:
