Subject Re: How To Use kafka-topics.sh To Move Replica To Different Broker
Date Thu, 15 May 2014 21:58:38 GMT
You cannot use the kafka-topics tool to move replicas to other brokers. To
learn how to move replicas, please see the "Custom partition assignment and
migration" section
here<http://kafka.apache.org/081/documentation.html#basic_ops_cluster_expansion>
.

Hope that helps! If not, please let us know, we are interested in improving
the quality of our documentation.

Thanks,
Neha
