Subject Re: Kafka running on AWS - how to retain broker.id on new instance spun-up in-place of instance/broker failed
Date Wed, 14 Nov 2018 19:26:03 GMT
Wow, that seems like an anti-pattern.
Replication itself should be enough to resurrect the cluster in case of
node failures. Technically, you shouldn't have to maintain the same broker
id. There must be something else going on with replication.
