One of the nice things about kafka is setting up in the local environment is really simple. I was giving a try to the latest feature ie MM2 and found it took me some time to get a minimal setup running.
Default config provided assumes that there will already be 3 brokers running due to the default replication factor of the admin topics the mm2 connector creates.
This got me thinking that most of the people would follow the same approach I followed.
1. Start a single broker cluster on 9092
2. Start another single cluster broker on, let's say, 10002
3. Start mm2 by"./bin/connect-mirror-maker.sh ./config/connect-mirror-maker.properties"
What happened was I had to supply a lot more configs
