NiFi - Cannot assign requested address (Bind failed)

NiFi - Cannot assign requested address (Bind failed)

Expert Contributor

Hi,

Getting the below error during nifi startup:

Exception in thread "main" java.net.BindException: Cannot assign requested address (Bind failed) at java.net.PlainSocketImpl.socketBind(Native Method) at java.net.AbstractPlainSocketImpl.bind(AbstractPlainSocketImpl.java:387) at java.net.ServerSocket.bind(ServerSocket.java:375) at java.net.ServerSocket.bind(ServerSocket.java:329) at org.apache.nifi.bootstrap.NiFiListener.start(NiFiListener.java:38) at org.apache.nifi.bootstrap.RunNiFi.start(RunNiFi.java:1022) at org.apache.nifi.bootstrap.RunNiFi.main(RunNiFi.java:216)

I've left nifi.properties default and verified ports not being used

nifi.web.http.host=

nifi.web.http.port=8080

any ideas?

Hi everybody,

I'm installing Nifi with Ambari on AWS EC2.

I got a similar error. What shall I do? Here the nifi-app.log:

Re: NiFi - Cannot assign requested address (Bind failed)

My first suggestion would be that another process is already using port 8080. You can check using

netstat -na|grep LISTEN|grep 8080
