the Data Integration won´t start for me too.
I noticed that there is an error in the DataIntegrationService log.

2017-03-16 07:33:23,396 INFO  DataIntegrationLog NiFi Server has been started successfully

 2017-03-16 07:33:47,826 ERROR DataIntegrationLog IsListening -

Is there some kind of fix for this?

Hi Devendran,

unfortunately there are no nifi logs.
I attached the Data Integration Agent and Manager Logs.
I also tried to install and run Nifi on its own and this won´t start either.
