Re: NiFi-1.5 not starting and showing error org.apache.nifi.bootstrap.RunNiFi NiFi never started Will not restart NiFi and Caused by: java.io.EOFException: Unexpected end of ZLIB input stream

Can you please confirm your classpath setting and make sure its pointing to correct version of NiFI.

Thanks for your response, Yes it is pointing to correct classpath. NiFi has been running until yesterday afternoon without any issues, when i did restart of my computer then tried to start NiFi 1.5 i'm getting this issueand i haven't changed any classpath and java versions before/after restart.

Re: NiFi-1.5 not starting and showing error org.apache.nifi.bootstrap.RunNiFi NiFi never started Will not restart NiFi and Caused by: java.io.EOFException: Unexpected end of ZLIB input stream

Please confirm if you tried deleting the flow repository at. $nifi_home/flowfile_repository. Also take backup of flow.xml.gz file. delete it and try again. The file is in your conf dir.

if i delete flow.xml.gz then nifi will start without any issues, root cause is flow.xml.gz has been corrupted and throwing all these errors.

Re: NiFi-1.5 not starting and showing error org.apache.nifi.bootstrap.RunNiFi NiFi never started Will not restart NiFi and Caused by: java.io.EOFException: Unexpected end of ZLIB input stream

The error is coming from trying to read the flow.xml.gz file which is typically in the conf dir. It seems this file may be corrupted.

If you don't care about your flow, then you can blow away this file to start fresh.

If you do care about your flow then you'll need to figure out what happened to this file. If it is a valid file you should be able to run gunzip to get it back to a regular flow.xml file, and then gzip to get it back to flow.xml.gz

You are right flow.xml.gz has been corrupted even i'm not able to do gunzip flow.xml.gz throwing error. As i have deleted the flow.xml.gz and restarted NiFi instance.
Is there any way that we can backup flow.xml.gz regular basis? and does new NiFi version control includes the backup of flow.xml.gz also?
