Installing Ambari 2.2, it seem that the kafka properties broker.id is missing, causing kafka broker not to start. Is this a bug? I had to add it to the config as a custom broker.
I think broker.id is not visible on Ambari, since it is automatically created upon kafka installation.
If you check your server.properties of all the brokers, you will see that they have different broker.id.
Btw, did anyone here put a value on host.name?
I saw on HDP docs that "Leave hostname empty to bind to default interface."
Kafka stores the broker.id in a file at time install of meta.properties and it will be forever that number until you delete that file is located kafka logs.dir/meta.properties

Stop Kafka and Delete and it should recreate
