Ok here is the solution:

I modified the /var/lib/ambari-agent/cache/common-services/NIFI/1.0.0/package/files/nifi-toolkit-1.1.0.2.1.1.0-2/bin/encrypt-config.sh

Added the line:

echo "The place it is looking is: ${CLASSPATH}"
The place it is looking is: /var/lib/ambari-agent/cache/common-services/NIFI/1.0.0/package/files/nifi-toolkit-1.1.0.2.1.1.0-2/lib/*

Now I updated the permissions on the lib folder and contents, everything works now!

@Joe Petro

What's the username for the user starting Nifi? What are the permissions for /var/lib/ambari-agent/cache/common-services/NIFI/1.0.0/package/files/nifi-toolkit-1.1.0.2.1.1.0-2/bin/encrypt-config.sh

Turns out the /var/lib/ambari-agent/cache/common-services/NIFI/1.0.0/package/ permissions were 400, now my issue is: resource_management.core.exceptions.ExecutionFailed: Execution of 'JAVA_HOME=/usr/jdk64/jdk1.8.0_77 /var/lib/ambari-agent/cache/common-services/NIFI/1.0.0/package/files/nifi-toolkit-1.1.0.2.1.1.0-2/bin/encrypt-config.sh -v -b /usr/hdf/current/nifi/conf/bootstrap.conf -n /usr/hdf/current/nifi/conf/nifi.properties -f /var/lib/nifi/conf/flow.xml.gz -s '[PROTECTED]' -p '[PROTECTED]'' returned 1.

Looks like a permissions issue with the encrypt-config tool. I'm guessing that you are running the script as a user who doesn't have the appropriate permissions to write/modify the /usr/hdf/current/nifi/conf directory (see here for an overview of the encrypt-config tool).

A few things to try:

1) Take a look at the /usr/hdf/current/nifi/conf directory, and make sure this directory can be written to by the user you're running the tool as (ambari? make sure that user is in the appropriate group to read/write this directory).

2) Try running the encrypt-config.sh tool on its own (see the link above; do this on its own and not thru ambari) and see if you run into the same issue, and see if this gets you further in diagnosing the issue.

It should be noted that I can manually start Nifi by running "nifi.sh start"
