Learning Kafka and need a little help with installing Zookeeper and Kafka on my Mac (V12.01)
I’ve installed Zookeeper from Brew
I’ve installed kafka from Brew.
Was trying to call the following command:
kafka-topics --create --topic rameTest --bootstrap-server 127.0.0.1:2181
and I get the following error:
ERROR org.apache.kafka.common.errors.TimeoutException: Timed out waiting for a node assignment. Call: createTopics
Is there any configuration setting I need to do to kafka to link Zookeeper?
Thank you for the help
welcome to the forum
some questions to better understand your starting point
- did you check whether kafka and zookeeper are running?
- did you check the logfiles of kafka and zookeeper?
Thank you so much for the help.
Once Zookeeper is installed it tells you how to start it…
To start zookeeper now and restart at login:
brew services start zookeeper
Or, if you don’t want/need a background service you can just run:
Davids-MacBook-Pro:~ davidramer$ zkServer start
ZooKeeper JMX enabled by default
Using config: /usr/local/etc/zookeeper/zoo.cfg
Starting zookeeper ... STARTED
ps -rf | grep zookeeper
501 64128 61231 0 3:18PM ttys000 0:00.00 grep zookeeper
then installed Kafka and restated it
Davids-MacBook-Pro:~ davidramer$ brew services restart kafka

Not sure where the log file is to review? can you point me to it?
thanks for the information
I guess there should be directory
like /usr/local/etc/kafka there should be a log4j conf (not sure if it’s there in homebrew installations but in vanilla kafka installation there is one )
btw just discovered that you’ve used the zookeeper default port to connect to the cluster
would you please try the following:
kafka-topics --create --topic rameTest --bootstrap-server 127.0.0.1:9092
FIXED… Thank you so much…
Davids-MacBook-Pro:bin davidramer$ kafka-topics --create --topic rameTest --bootstrap-server 127.0.0.1:9092
Created topic rameTest.
