MiNiFi java not starting

Explorer

Hi,

 

I'm trying to deploy a minifi instance in Windows Server. The process deployed basically waits for a file, read it and send the content to the Nifi instance in other server in the same network.

 

Template's transformation finished OK and none changes have been made

 

D:\minifi-1.14.0\minifi-toolkit-1.14.0\bin>config.bat transform Captura_Log_de_Errrores_Remotos.xml Captura_Log_de_Errrores_Remotos.yml
No validation errors found in converted configuration.

 

My problem is that MiNiFi is not starting with the following exception:

 

c:\minifi\bin>run-minifi.bat

Nifi's configuration is:

nifiConfig.png

 

Port 10000 is up on Nifi's server and can be accessed from MiniFi's  server...

 

I'll appreciate your help

@templarian ,

 

If you could provide the converted YAML configuration, it could help understanding what the problem is.

 

Cheers,

André

Hi André,

 

Yaml file here

 

Thanks.

Master Collaborator

@templarian ,

 

Your file has the characters "ú" and "í", which are not valid in an UTF-8 encoded file.

Try replacing them with either "u" and "i", or with the proper UTF-8 encoding sequences "\xFA" and "\xED", respectively. For example:

Extraer \xFAltimas 10 l\xEDneas del log

 

Cheers,

André

Hi André,

 

It works, however I'm still facing problems to start the MiNiFi, now I'm seeing the following errors in the nifi-app.log

  • About the warnings I could not find which processors in the flow has the maxconcurrentask unset, all have one as value (1).
  • About the network interface, input and output ports warnings I suppose that it refers to the remote process group. In this point, I understand that, at least the network interface, is an optional parameter.
  • The final error, nifi.sensitive.props.key. I seted this property but when minifi try to starts set the value to empty again and then fails.

Thanks again.
