issues while setting up Nifi Secure cluster version 1.0.0

Hi, @Bryan Bende i am following below post to set nifi cluster -

http://bryanbende.com/development/2016/08/17/apache-nifi-1-0-0-authorization-and-multi-tenancy

Getting this error - while starting one of the nodes in the cluster . looks like its a recursive loop. Can you please help troubleshoot this ?

Thanks!

Re: issues while setting up Nifi Secure cluster version 1.0.0

That means the user you are logging in as does not have permission to access the UI. You can check nifi-user.log to see the user identity that is coming from your request (it should be the DN of your cert) and compare that to what is in users.xml and authorizations.xml.

If this is your "initial admin" identity then this should have been entered in authorizers.xml as the initial admin, and that would have granted it all the correct permissions. If you had already tried to setup an initial admin before then you need to delete users.xml and authorizations.xml before trying to change the "initial admin", otherwise it won't take effect.

Re: issues while setting up Nifi Secure cluster version 1.0.0

Hello, It looks like one of the nodes just can't connect to ZooKeeper. In my example everything was local and there was only one embedded ZK, which isn't really a production scenario, so I assume you have something slightly different.

Can you describe the ZooKeeper setup a little bit? are you running embedded ZK? and if so how many ZK instances and how many nodes in the NiFi cluster?

Re: issues while setting up Nifi Secure cluster version 1.0.0

Thanks Bryan for the quick response .I have a 3 node cluster , I am running ZK on all the nodes .

I have nifi.properties as below on all three nodes with host names updated accordingly

nifi.state.management.embedded.zookeeper.start=true

nifi.zookeeper.connect.string=apsrt3391:2181,apsrt3390:2181,apsrt3401:2181

-------------------------------------------

nifi.cluster.is.node=true

nifi.cluster.node.address=apsrt3391

nifi.cluster.node.protocol.port=11443

nifi.cluster.node.protocol.threads=10

nifi.cluster.node.event.history.size=25

nifi.cluster.node.connection.timeout=5 sec

nifi.cluster.node.read.timeout=5 sec

nifi.cluster.firewall.file=

--------------------------------------------------------------

nifi.remote.input.host=apsrt3391

nifi.remote.input.secure=true

nifi.remote.input.socket.port=10443

nifi.remote.input.http.enabled=true

nifi.remote.input.http.transaction.ttl=30 sec

-------------------------------------------------------------

nifi.web.war.directory=./lib

nifi.web.http.host=

nifi.web.http.port=

nifi.web.https.host=apsrt3391

nifi.web.https.port=8443

Updated the State-Management.xml

<property name="Connect String">apsrt3391:2181,apsrt3390:2181,apsrt3402:2181</property>

And zookeeper.properties as

server.1=apsrt3390:2888:3888

server.2=apsrt3391:2888:3888

server.3=apsrt3402:2888:3888

Also created myid file with 1, 2,3 respectively in 3390,3391,3402

I have created one certificate which has the names of all the servers , I have exported the public portion of the cert and placed it in truststore.jks . the same certificate and truststore is installed on all the servers .

the authorizers.xml file looks like this .

<authorizer> <identifier>file-provider</identifier> <class>org.apache.nifi.authorization.FileAuthorizer</class> <property name="Authorizations File">./conf/authorizations.xml</property> <property name="Users File">./conf/users.xml</property> <property name="Initial Admin Identity"></property> <property name="Legacy Authorized Users File"></property>

<!-- Provide the identity (typically a DN) of each node when clustered, see above description of Node Identity. --> <property name="Node Identity 1">apsrt3390.ccc.com</property> <property name="Node Identity 2">apsrt3391.ccc.com</property> <property name="Node Identity 3">apsrt3402.ccc.com</property> </authorizer> </authorizers>

If the dn for all the servers is the same ,can I just mention ccc.com ?

Thanks very much for your help

Re: issues while setting up Nifi Secure cluster version 1.0.0

I think the issue might be a typo in:

nifi.zookeeper.connect.string=apsrt3391:2181,apsrt3390:2181,apsrt3401:2181

In other places you had apsrt3402 and not 3401.

I'm not totally sure about the setup of having one certificate that has all the server names. The DN is the distinguished name and is usually different per server, and each server would have a keystore that has that certificate for the DN of the given server. In your example the DN is not ccc.com, it should be something like:

CN=apsrt3391, OU=...
CN=apsrt3390, OU=...
CN=apsrt3402, OU=...

And each of them needs to be listed as a node identity in authorizers.xml.

Re: issues while setting up Nifi Secure cluster version 1.0.0

hi Bryan , Good Morning , Thanks , that was a typo - while I was documenting it for the post , I double checked it , it looks fine . What I did last night was removed all security config - followed pvilliard 's doc . I still get the same error. I am thinking if the ports are not available for communication . I tried this command for the ports that I configured

(echo >/dev/tcp/localhost/10443) &>/dev/null && echo "TCP port 10443 open" || echo "TCP port 10443 close"

TCP port 10443 close

Telnet also shows as connection refused .

Re: issues while setting up Nifi Secure cluster version 1.0.0

hi Bryan - Just to update you regarding this , I was able to get the unsecured cluster with 3 nodes working with only one instance of zookeeper. I had also removed secured login before . So, will be trying to make secure login work .

Thanks

Re: issues while setting up Nifi Secure cluster version 1.0.0

Hi , I am not able to use the certs that I generated using a corporate tool to setup https login , so I went back to setting it up locally on my machine . I have the certs generated using the nifi-toolkit and updated properties etc , the server is up and running, but I cannot login . It could be because I need to add CA certs from my corporate browser to the truststore . But I cant open the truststore - looks like the toolkit ignored the password that I provided while generating the certs . DO you know what the default password is or how to find out what it generated ?

Thanks

Re: issues while setting up Nifi Secure cluster version 1.0.0

The toolkit produces a nifi.properties with the keystore and truststore, and that nifi.properties has the values for the keystore and truststore password filled in. You should use the toolkit to generate a client cert (p12) and load that into your browser and use that to access NiFI.

Thank you very much, I thought its encrypted password , but I was able to use it to open truststore . :)
