File Reader Node gets NullPointerException


I’m executing a Workflow on the KNIME-Server via WebPortal. The first File Reader Node (More then 8 Mill. lines) works fine, but the second File Reader Node (23 lines) gets a NullPointerException.
On my local KNIME installation everything works fine and so it was on the Server. But after I changed a value in a Partitioning Node (testing with less data) and reupload, the Workflow failes due to the NullPointerException at the File Reader Node.

Any ideas?


E: After a new reupload, no error accurred. Is the NullPointer just a random error?!

Hi @sven-abx

I’m assuming no files or settings were changed before the reupload? This is a rather strange error that I have not seen before.
Assuming this is a bug, could you let me know which version of KNIME Analytics Platform you are using and, if you happen to know, also the KNIME server version? I can then try to reproduce the error.

If you happen to have more details on the error message, I’d also be interested in those.

Kind regards

Hi Sven,

did you ever run into this issue again? I wasn’t able to reproduce the error so far.
Incase you encountered the error again, could you (within the WebPortal) have a look at the job in the monitoring tab and let me know whether there is any content in the Node messages column?

Kind regards
