- You try to create a Workflow Manager farm that has a load-balanced URL.
- The load-balanced URL is in a different DNS domain than the domain of the Workflow Manager servers.
- You try to create the Workflow Manager farm by using the Autogenerate option for the Workflow Manager certificates.
Consider the following example:
The Workflow Manager servers are in the corp.contoso.com domain. You configure Workflow Manager with a load-balanced URL such as one of the following:
- A URL in the parent domain: wfm.contoso.com
- A URL in a subdomain: wfm.subdomain.corp.contoso.com
- A URL in a sibling domain: wfm.sibling.contoso.com
- A URL in the different domain: wfm.contososervices.com
Resolution 1For the load-balanced URL, use a DNS name that is in the same domain as the servers.
Resolution 2Supply your own certificate for the Workflow Manager certificates. The certificate should contain the desired DNS name of the load-balanced URL. You can use "autogenerate" for the ServiceBus certificates.
- Create a secure communications certificate (TLS/SSL certificate) with CN=<load-balanced URL>. This certificate will be used by the Workflow Manager components but not Service Bus.
- In the Workflow Manager Configuration Wizard, select the Custom option.
- For Workflow Manager certificates, select the certificate that you created in step 1.
- For Service Bus certificates, select auto generate.
- Complete the installation as usual by using the Configuration Wizard. Or, use the wizard-generated script.
