Does anyone know if it is possible to exclude the Kafka service from the primary "Cluster Start/Stop" sequence in Cloudera Manager? We need to stop the CDH cluster to perform maintenance on the MySQL metadata server, which affects Hive, Impala, Sentry, Hue, HBase?, Oozie, Navigator, etc... all of which we use. Kafka is part if this CDH cluster.
To stop the cluster, I would like to use the cluster "start/stop" menu item on the main CM page just for peace of mind in maintaining the proper shut down and startup sequence, but that would include Kafka going down as well, which we would like to avoid if possible. Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks!
