TLS configuration issue for multiple Kafka brokers in RHOCP 4

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • After creating a ClusterLogForwarder (CLF) instance to send the logs to multiple Kafka brokers using TLS, the message below appears in the collector logs:

    rdkafka::client: librdkafka: Global error: BrokerTransportFailure (Local: Broker transport failure): kafkacluster1:9092/bootstrap: Disconnected while requesting ApiVersion: might be caused by incorrect security.protocol configuration (connecting to a SSL listener?) or broker version is < 0.10 (see api.version.request) (after 2ms in state APIVERSION_QUERY, 1 identical error(s) suppressed)
  • TLS configuration is not fully added for Vector pods when using multiple Kafka brokers.
