How do I solve a "failed to resolve address" error after upgrading the Events Service to 4.3?


The Events Service does not start after upgrading from version 4.2 to version 4.3.


The following error message appears in events-service/logs/events-service-api-store.log:

1) Error injecting constructor, java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Failed to resolve address for [[9300-9400]]
at<init>(Unknown Source)

Caused by: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Failed to resolve address for [[9300-9400]]



Following the steps in the Upgrade the Events Service documentation, the user moves the data directory and copies all properties in the file located in the events-service/conf/ directory to the new config directory.


The user then sees the following error after starting the Events Service:

1) Error injecting constructor, java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Failed to resolve address for [[9300-9400]]


This is due to a change in the value of the property within the properties file in version 4.3.


Version 4.2 example[9300-9400],[9300-9400],[9300-9400]


Version 4.3 example,,



Do not enter a range for the property when copying and pasting old properties into the new property file.  


Instead of:[9300-9400]
