I'm on a dedicated box, not ec2.
BTW, I am running everything (zookeeper and kafka) on the same server.
Just to recap, I'm doing everthing default as per the quickstart.
Zookeeper started just fine.
When trying to run kafka server with config/server.properties I got:
Error: Exception thrown by the agent : java.net.MalformedURLException:
Local host name unknown: java.net.UnknownHostException: myhostname:
Why does it repeat the hostname in the exception?
That's all the exception I got, is there a way to get a more detailed
exception, is that what you are referring to?
