I have recently downlaod QuickStart VM 5.13 and trying some samples for CCA 175 in Kafka but I can't seems to find Kafka installed...
Do I need to do anything extra to get kafka?
Appreciate your guidance.

Kafka is not included in the Quickstart VM. It has to be installed as a separate parcel. See our documentation about Installing, Migrating and Upgrading CDK Powered By Apache Kafka.

Thanks and Sorry, I am struggling to find out which Kafka version to use for QuickStart VM CDH 5.13
This is the page I end up in and I could not figure out CDH version to Kafka version table...
if Kafka is part of certification then why it was included in QuickStart VM, isn't it makes life easy for everyone?

You can view the requirements in the Release Notes. So you don't have to click through the requirements, the table of versions of CDH that support the current release of Kafka may be found under Kafka Client Versions Used by Apache Flume in CDH. The minium version supported on CDH 5.13 is Kafka 2.0.2, so you may use the latest release (3.1).
Kafka is a newer addition to the components provided and supported by Cloudera. As such, it has not been bundled into CDH and the QuickStart VM.
