0 votes

Hi. I am trying to start kafka service but I am facing some problem. I have made the following entries in the  file:

[Unit]

Requires=zookeeper.service

After=zookeeper.service


[Service]

Type=simple

User=kafka

ExecStart=/bin/sh -c '/home/kafka/kafka/bin/kafka-server-start.sh /home/kafka/kafka/config/server.properties > /home/kafka/kafka/kafka.log 2>&1'

ExecStop=/home/kafka/kafka/bin/kafka-server-stop.sh

Restart=on-abnormal


[Install]

WantedBy=multi-user.target

And then ran:

$ sudo systemctl start kafka​

But I get no output.

Check the path that you mentioned in the kafka.service file. Make sure you have mentioned the correct path to the Kafka folder. I don't see any other response for this output.

sudo systemctl status kafka

This should at least give you some idea if your service is running​ or has failed. You can also use 

journalctl -xeu kafka

to get a slightly more detailed view of your service.
