Subject Re: Elegant way to failover controller
Date Wed, 05 Apr 2017 16:12:41 GMT
You can force the controller to move, but you can’t control where it goes.
To force the controller to move to another broker, delete the “/controller”
znode in Zookeeper for the cluster. This will cause the current controller
to resign and a new one to be elected, but it’s random as to what broker
that will be.

A better question here is why do you want to move the controller?
