Andy, I’ve never done this before. I hope I did it right.
https://gist.github.com/cissmjg/544be6c1e1f571bd97177a55eb088c1a I attempted to build NiFi with the ‘default’ mvn commands from the QuickStart page. If you need me to build with other options, please let me know. Thanks, Mike G.

I understand it’s too long to put in the email body, but the full output should help us contextualize the error and hopefully solve this and prevent other users from encountering it.

It's written in Java, so there are no platform gotchas at all: https://nifi.apache.org/download.html On 10/18/2016 07:36 AM, Giordano, Michael wrote: I am currently following the NiFi QuickStart to get my first NiFi server up and running under CentOS 6.7.
