Nifi instances in docker containers doesn't start

Nifi instances in docker containers doesn't start

Rising Star

Hi,


I have a gcp so i had made two dockers on it with nifi installed on it I'm able to run them individually but as soon as i run them as in cluster by changing zookeeper and nifi properties it stops working gives me the below error. I had already cleared my provenance repo but still getting the same error . I was following the link from here.

Re: Nifi instances in docker containers doesn't start

The error is in the log you posted:

Caused by: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: ./state/zookeeper/myid file is missing 

it couldn't find the myid file stated in Pierre's instructions in order to proceed with cluster startup.

You should also be aware that Zookeeper needs an odd number of nodes to form a quorum and operate correctly, so you should either only have ZK on the first node, or make a 3 node cluster.

Re: Nifi instances in docker containers doesn't start

Rising Star

@Dan Chaffelson myid file is already present in the required path inside docker container, I doubt there is need to give docker ip's in the connection string, host address properties of zookeeper and nifi properties file. As of now I Have given my host IP with the two ports open on two dockers(8051,8052) so i think it is trying to find it on the host only and not docker containers.
Nifi has embedded ZK individually running on each docker instance. Quorum only comes to picture if there is individual ZK nodes set up and we need to specify which is the primary one
