Move WFM 1.0 to another server (same domain) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    Any feedback on this issue is greatly appreciated. We are in the process of scaling down a farm and need to move Workflow Manager 1.0 from Server B to Server A. 

    My initial thought was to  try and join Server A to the farm, thus receiving the correct configuration settings, making in primary and then drop Server B. No such luck however. Does anyone know how to go about doing this in a safe and secure manner?



    When trying to join one server to the managementDB, we receive: "Cannot validate argument on parameter 'CertificateAutoGenerationKey'. The certificate generation key does not meet the password policy requirements. Check the minimum password length and password complexity requirements."

    Which is odd since WFM is already running on the other machine?!

  • Hi, 

    Its been 5 months and no one replied to your post. Actually, I'm in the same situation, I need to move WM to another server and discard the existing one. Did you manage to do it? Can you please explain, what steps you performed?


    Thanks, Kashif
