  • I have found similar function in SharePoint 2010: If the workflow is continued from a delay timer or from an event being received elsewhere, it executes within the SPTimer service. Using a new option in SharePoint Central Administration, you can now set the preferred server where the SPTimer service runs. To do this, click in the Manage Content Databases menu of the Application Management section of SharePoint Central Administration. Then click on your content database and scroll down to the setting for Preferred Server for Timer Jobs .

    Can I set preferred server in SharePoint 2007?

    Can I manually stop the SPTimer service on second application server (Are other features working correctly on the server)?
