Re: Nifi 1.1 Can't start

@Matt Burgess @Timothy Spann please give some suggestion..

Re: Nifi 1.1 Can't start

Super Guru

It looks like the flow.xml is not in the right format. Did you copy it from an older version of NiFi into a newer version of NiFi? Also if you don't mind starting with a blank canvas, you can delete or move your conf/flow.xml.gz and then start NiFi. You might also attach your flow.xml.gz (or gunzipped flow.xml) to this question so we can have a look. Take care to make sure there is no sensitive information in it first (hostnames, IPs, etc.) since this is a public forum.

Re: Nifi 1.1 Can't start

i change that flow.xml.gz from an older version,i also remove that flow.xml.gz.but still my nifi wont start.

Re: Nifi 1.1 Can't start

Super Guru

do you have any weird configuration settings? anyting blocking the port? what is the message on failed restart?

firewall? out of RAM? ps -ef to make sure dead process is not hanging

Did the issue is solved? If you have multiple nifi nodes in a cluster, you need to remove flow.xml.gz in all nodes before restarting them. If that also didn't help, as Matt mentioned, please attach flow.xml.gz.
