I have installed Kafka on my HDP cluster using Ambari. With the default configuration, Ambari installed only one Kafka broker. However, now had installed another two Kafla brokers in the clusters. My requirement is to remove the Kafka broker on the initial machine, on which it was installed.
When I checked Ambari, it doesn't seem to allow me to delete the Kafka broker on a machine, though it allows to install. May I know how to remove a Kafka broker from a node in the HDP cluster, preferably through Ambari?
@Neeraj Sabharwal not if you add additional brokers after running Kafka for some time. It is not that easy, Kafka assigns broker ids in sequential order and there's some magic needed to keep the order after adding new brokers.
