Can you confirm if you have the "Topic Auto Creation" disabled: auto.create.topics.enable=false

If so, have you created the t1 topic beforehand?

Can you do the following:
kafka-topics --zookeeper <zkhost>:2181 --list
kafka-topics --zookeeper <zkhost>:2181 --describe --topic t1

Hi,

I have topic auto creation enabled in kafka when I got the error previously. I tried it now after disabling auto creation and again I'm getting the same result, along with the list topic and describe topic returning nothing.
