Provenance repository NoSuchFileException: /usr/hdf/current/nifi/conf/sensitive.key

Explorer

I have a HDF cluster, 1 ambari server and 3 Nifi nodes. Some days ago, the cluster shutted down automatically. Reviewing the logs, find this error Provenance Repository Rollover Thread-1, NoSuchFileException: /usr/hdf/current/nifi/conf/sensitive.key. After reviewing in the 3 nodes, can't find the file. We stopped the service, restarted, not work. Restarted one by one, node 1 fine, node 2 fine, node 3 fine, shut down node 1, after a while node 2 too. We found some answers in forum and applied the propose solution, worked for a day, today the service is down again. Any clues?

Regards

You are running into https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NIFI-4187

There currently is no HDF release that includes this fix. What is happening is something is causing the NIFi process to die. The NiFi bootstrap detects that the NiFi process has hung or died and tries to restart it where it runs in to the above BUG. I would search you NiFi logs for perhaps some OOM error that may have have caused the NiFi process to die.
