Install the Kafka package from the command line in cloudera quickstart VM 5.13

Hi All,

 

I have tried to install the kafka package into the quickstart VM 5.13 using the below commands

 

  1. Navigate to the /etc/yum.repos.d directory.
  2. wget http://archive.cloudera.com/kafka/redhat/6/x86_64/kafka/
  3. sudo yum clean all
  4. sudo yum install kafka
  5. sudo yum install kafka-server

i have installed kafka server suceesfully.

6) sudo service kafka-server start. Here I'm getting  error saying "kafka-server:unrecognized service "

7) In this path /etc/kafka/conf/server.properties I could see the broker Id: 0

8) when i  type zookeeper-client.it is connected successfully.

 

 

I am trying to create topics in Kafka by following the guide on  cloudera -apache Kafka through command line. While running the command:

/usr/bin/kafka-topics --create --zookeeper hostname:2181/kafka --replication-factor 2
--partitions 4 --topic topicname

 

I get the below errors as follows:

 

Error while executing topic command replication factor: 1 larger than available
brokers: 0
kafka.admin.AdminOperationException: replication factor: 1 larger than available
brokers: 0

 

Could you someone please help me how to fix this error?

please tell me steps to start the kafka server correctly and how to  fix the create topic error?

 

Thanks

Anbu
