Hope you are doing well.


Thanks for raising a request, we are glad assisting you.


Please confirm us are you using edureka kafka VM.


If you are using edureka kafka VM the try with below command.

 

bin/kafka-topics.sh --create --zookeeper localhost:2181 --replication-factor 1 --partitions 1 --topic test



Before this please check whether all the daemons are running or not.


==> sudo jps



==> If any one of the daemon is not running then fire the command sudo service hadoop-master restart and then fire sudo jps.
