moss 2007 workflow error failed on start(retrying)

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#
 

i am getting this error "failed on start(retrying)" on a custom workflows.

The error does not occur very frequently, once a week (the workflow is triggered roughly 50 times a day).

Any ideas? Or where can I get more details on this error (some log files elsewhere?)

 

Thanks.

 1. I tried again, in C Prompt:  Lodctr "c:\Windows\Microsoft.Net\Framework\v3.0\Windows Workflow Foundation\perfcounters.ini"  it says initiation file cannot be found

2   i again tried this C prompt Lodctr /R "c:\Windows\Microsoft.Net\Framework\v3.0\Windows Workflow Foundation\perfcounters.ini"

it says reloaded  from the system restored

i am still getting the same error.

When i manually go to my  C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.0\Windows Workflow Foundation i can see a folder for SQL that's it nothing more than that..

I dont know what is happening i am trying it from 2 days and still no solution.

Workflow Error - Failed on Start (retrying) - Allow this list to receive e-mail? Yes

  

I have created a simple discussion board list with NO modifications to the fields or views.  I have turned on the option to allow new items to be created via email (Allow this list to receive e-mail? = yes).  In sharepoint designer I have created a simple workflow that sets a workflow variable (type string) to 'true'.  When I manually create a new discussion board item for this list, the workflow completes successfully; however, when I email in a new discussion board item, the item is created, but the workflow fails with the "Failed on Start (retrying)" workflow status.

The workflow is set to only fire when new items are created.

 


Trying to trigger workflow for Survey got error" Failed to Start(retrying)"

  

I created an survey for the department i am working for. I did that at sharepoint designer 2007, then i created workflow and attached that with the survey page, i added conditions and actions when workflow is started upon item is created. But it throws me an error saying" Failed to Start(retrying)".

I dont know what going on , I saw in ablog saying windows sharepoint services 3.0 doesnt support attaching workflow into surveys. I dont know what else can be done to make this possible.

Can you please give me some advices, i am new on this field.

Thank You

Workflow "Failed on Start (retrying)" when new item created by BizTalk SharePoint Adapter

  

We've been using the BizTalk SharePoint Adapter to load various different contents into a MOSS 2007 Document Library. The library has a Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer 2007 workflow (sequential workflow created in Designer) which starts automatically when a new item is added to the Document Library. Or, at least, it eventually starts automatically.

 

For some unknown reason--and this is what we're hoping some of you may have some ideas on--the workflow fails to start on the first try, producing the "Failed to Start (retrying)" message. When the timer job comes back the second time, the workflow starts successfully, but this causes us to loose five minutes of potential work time (not to mention making us look bad to the VPs and CTO because they see the failure message).

 

In checking the log, I find the following pair of error messages each time the "Failed to Start (retrying)" status occurs:

 

08/27/2007 13:49:43.24  w3wp.exe (0x0CA0)                        0x1438 Windows SharePoint Services    Workflow Infrastructure        72fs Unexpected RunWorkflow: Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException: <Error><CompilerError Line="1" Column="1" Text="The root activity type is invalid.&q

We had deactivated and activated all the related workflow features at site collection level but didn't succeed. This we have also tried using SharePoint Manager 2007 .

Could you please check and help on this issue ?

Thanks in advance.
