Could not start embedded kafka service in atlas


Hi, I'm getting this error in Apache atlas. I basically wrote a piece of code to fetch metadata from a database server such as mysql. when I tried to merge my changes into the code from Atlas's latest repository. I got following errors

org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name 'services': Invocation of init method failed; nested exception is java.lang.RuntimeException: org.apache.atlas.AtlasException: Failed to start embedded kafka

Can anyone please guide me? what did I missed?

Though, if I do telnet localhost 9026.. I see some valid response...

Atlas connects to kafka through zookeeper. The error from screenshot says "Address already in use", can you make sure the port 9026/9027 is free before starting up atlas.
