Re: How to create the initial zookeeper chroot path for zk.connect?
Yes, using the latest Kafka 0.7.2, just tried to reproduce again

1. Install a single node Kafka, three nodes zookeeper instances


2. Using a simple Kafka config, able to start without error in the log


3. Now, create a path in zookeeper1

    zkCli.sh -server zookeeper1:2181

        ls /
        [consumers, brokers, zookeeper]
        create /testkafka ''
        ls /
        [testkafka, consumers, brokers, zookeeper]

Quit & Done.

4. Verify from zookeeper2

    zkCli.sh -server zookeeper2:2181
        ls /
        [testkafka, consumers, brokers, zookeeper]

Seems ok

4. Update kafka config and restart

Restart and have the error

Any idea?
