Hi@akhtar,

It is a must to set up ZooKeeper for Kafka. ZooKeeper performs many tasks for Kafka, but in short, we can say that ZooKeeper manages the Kafka cluster state. 

  • Download ZooKeeper from the below-given link.

https://zookeeper.apache.org/releases.html.   

  • Unzip the file. Inside the conf directory, rename the file zoo_sample.cfg as zoo.cfg

  • The zoo.cfg file keeps configuration for ZooKeeper, i.e. on which port the ZooKeeper instance will listen, data directory, etc.

  • The default listen port is 2181. You can change this port by changing the client port.

  • The default data directory is /tmp/data. Change this, as you will not want ZooKeeper's data to be deleted after some random timeframe. 

  • Go to the bin directory.

  • Start ZooKeeper by executing the command ./zkServer.sh start.
