NiFi doesnt start on red-hat 6.8

Rising Star

Hi,

I am trying to install NiFi on redhat 6.8 withing following steps

wget http://public-repo-1.hortonworks.com/HDF/2.0.1.0/HDF-2.0.1.0-12.tar.gz
tar -zxf HDF-2.0.1.0-12.tar.gz
cd HDF-2.0.1.0-12/nifi
bin/nifi.sh start

After this I see following messages in logs

[root@abc000732 nifi]# tailf logs/nifi-bootstrap.log

I have oracle java (1.8.0_60) installed on this VM and iptables is off and selinux is disabled.

Anyone know whats wrong with this. Same steps works on Centos 6.8

Please check in the nifi-app.log file, not bootstrap. Most probably there is a service in your host already taking the 8080 port. You can edit conf/nifi.properties and modify the port to a non-conflicting one.

added logs to my question.

Ok, it looks like an environmental issue with random entropy collection. There are several ways to solve it, pick your choice based on prod/non-prod requirements. There was a previous discussion with some suggestions here: https://community.hortonworks.com/questions/58436/hdf-20-handing-on-restart.html
