Apache Kafka Producer Error “zookeeper is not a recognized option”

As I’m brushing up on Apache Kafka_2.11_2.0.1 (Scala 11, Kafka 2.0.1) on macOS Mojave, I ran into this minor hick up while trying to spin up a command line Producer:

$ sh bin/kafka-console-consumer.sh --zookeeper localhost:2181 --topic my_topic --from-beginning
zookeeper is not a recognized option

Turns out they changed that option name from “–zookeeper localhost:2181” to “–bootstrap-server localhost:9092. The new command looks like so:

$sh bin/kafka-console-consumer.sh --bootstrap-server localhost:9092 --topic my_topic --from-beginning
