Can we run Kafka Mirror Maker process between different versions of Kafka cluster?

Kafka 0.10.1 -> MirrorMaker -> Kafka 0.9.0.

How to do that?

Please suggest.

Thanks,

It seems that you are looking to mirror to a previous release. That is possible because 0.10 is backward compatible with 0.9.0. There is no special setup, just use MirrorMaker 0.10.1. It is like you would mirror 0.10.1 to 0.10.1.
