Before you begin MiNiFi agent installation on Windows
You must go through the prerequisites before you begin installation of MiNiFi agent on Windows.
Apache NiFi MiNiFi C++ is built on Window Server 2016, 2019, and Windows 10 operating systems.
Since the project is CMake focused, Cloudera recommends building the Microsoft Installer (MSI)
or Windows Installer through the
ms_build.bat script. In order to build the
MSI, please install the WiX Toolset.
The project previously required OpenSSL to be installed. If you follow Cloudera build procedures, you do not need to install that dependency. Further, any MSI distributable requires that systems install the Visual Studio 2010 redistributables.
Building through the build script
The preferred way of building the project is through the
script found in the root source folder.
You must supply a single command, the build directory. Typically you create a directory with
CMake and build the MSI in that directory referencing your CMake tree. Simply supply the
win_build_vs.bat an argument like
build as the name of your
build directory and it will create this directory building the project within it. Alternatively,
you can use the
win_build_vs.bat build /K /T /P command to build Kafka, skip
tests, and build the CMake at the same time.
If WiX Toolset is installed, cpack creates your MSI in the chosen build directory.
/64option. To do so, you require the 64-bit version of the Visual Studio redistributables mentioned in system requirements.
