Restarting NiFi nodes fails with an error message such as the one below:
<br>File "/var/lib/ambari-agent/cache/common-services/NIFI/1.0.0/package/scripts/nifi.py", line 278, in
    Master().execute()
  File "/usr/lib/ambari-agent/lib/resource_management/libraries/script/script.py", line 353, in execute
    method(env)
  File "/usr/lib/ambari-agent/lib/resource_management/libraries/script/script.py", line 993, in restart
    self.start(env, upgrade_type=upgrade_type)
  File "/var/lib/ambari-agent/cache/common-services/NIFI/1.0.0/package/scripts/nifi.py", line 152, in start
    nifi_cli.create_or_update_reg_client(params.nifi_registry_host, params.nifi_registry_url)
  File "/u/var/lib/ambari-agent/cache/common-services/NIFI/1.0.0/package/scripts/nifi_cli.py", line 175, in create_or_update_reg_client
    existing_clients = list_reg_clients()
  File "/u/var/lib/ambari-agent/cache/common-services/NIFI/1.0.0/package/scripts/nifi_cli.py", line 144, in list_reg_clients
    outputType="json"
  File "/u/var/lib/ambari-agent/cache/common-services/NIFI/1.0.0/package/scripts/nifi_cli.py", line 73, in nifi_cli
    raise Fail("Failed to execute nifi cli.sh command")

Cause:

This occurs when the nifi.initial.admin.identity does not have permission to access the /controller API.

Workaround:

Create a local user in Ranger with the name of the initial admin idenity

Add a Ranger Policy for NiFi with Read/Write permissions for /controller

This solution can help too as it can be caused by a port clash on 9088 when superset is running on the same host

Hi! Have same problem, but Ranger not installed

[root@serv12 ~]# grep -i Ranger /var/lib/ambari-agent/data/output-869.txt 2018-10-03 17:49:28,216 - Ranger admin not installed

@Charles Bernard's suggestion solved it for me.
