Configuring Workflow Manager 1.0 on SharePoint 2013 (screenshots)

During my first attempt to enable Workflow Manager 1.0 on a local VM I ran into the following error:

—> System.InvalidOperationException: Program C:\Program Files\Windows Fabric\bin\Fabric\Fabric.Code.1.0\FabricDeployer.exe exited with error: Windows Fabric deployment failed.DeploymentValidator: warning: The Fabric Data Collection Agent is disabled for this deployment.
None of the declared nodes is for the current machine.

The steps I took to resolve were:

  1. Start \ Programs \ Workflow Manager 1.0 \ Workflow Manager Configuration \ Remove from Farm     (not to be confused with SharePoint “farm”)
  2. Drop SQL databases for Workflow Manager.   (SbGatewayDatabase, SbManagementDB, SBMessageContainer01, WFInstanceManagementDB, WFManagementDB, WFResourceManagementDB)
  3. Start \ Programs \ Workflow Manager 1.0 \ Workflow Manager Configuration \ Configure Workflow Manager with Default Settings (Recommended)
  4. Two things I did differently on the next pass: 
    1. I used the SQL alias “SPSQL” instead of the FQDN machine names.   I’m using that for SharePoint and prefer SQL aliases for management flexibility.
    2. I formatted the user name as “DEMO\SPFARM” instead of “SPFARM@DEMO” (default text value).   That seems to make more sense for AD login credentials and I didn’t understand why the default was more of an email syntax.
    3. I commented out all of the HOSTS file entries.  While this may not be related, I wanted to simplify the connections as much as possible.   I had “127.0.0.1” entries for the local machine to ensure connectivity even as a change VM host network settings, but removed while running the WF configuration wizard.
  5. Ran the wizard just like before and it completed successfully this time.

 

Now I can continue the steps outlined at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj658588(v=office.15) and run the PowerShell cmdlet Register-SPWorkflowService
