  1. Hi Stefan
    I have a SharePoint 2016 farm consists of 6 servers (2 wfe, 2 app, 2 search) with Oct 2021 patch.
    Currently Workflow manager runs on one of the app servers, say LON1APP and other servers run Workflow client.
    Recently because of some issues in LON1 data center, I am considering to either run Workflow Manager on both app servers, or move the Workflow Manager to LON2APP.
    Workflow uses some certificates as well that are installed on LON1APP.
    Can you please recommend a good guideline paper or best practice for this exercise?
    Thanks and regards
