Kafka Socket server failed - Bind Exception

Kafka Socket server failed - Bind Exception

Contributor

I am trying to start kafka server. But I am getting the below error. Any idea about fix?

[2019-01-23 16:36:17,954] ERROR [KafkaServer id=0] Fatal error during KafkaServer startup. Prepare to shutdown (kafka.server.KafkaServer)

That's typical a port conflict issue "Socket server failed to bind to 0.0.0.0:9092:Address already inuse" Kafka listens on TCP port 9092 so this means there is already a process running on port 9092 change the port KafkaServer id=0 to something like 9093 or get the PID running on the port and kill it then restart kafka

# lsof -n -i :9092 | grep LISTEN

The PID should be the second column entry eg 7812 below

java 7812 root 205u IPv6 60200 0t0 TCP *:webcache (LISTEN)

Now kill the process

# kill -9 7812

Now your Kafka should restart successfully , if you are running multiple brokers do configure like below

broker.id=0
listeners=PLAINTEXT://:9092
log.dirs=/tmp/kafka-logs


server.1.properties
broker.id=1
listeners=PLAINTEXT://:9093
log.dirs=/tmp/kafka-logs1


server.2.properties
broker.id=2
listeners=PLAINTEXT://:9094
log.dirs=/tmp/kafka-logs2


server.3.properties
broker.id=3
listeners=PLAINTEXT://:9095
log.dirs=/tmp/kafka-logs3
