Warning: When Apache Kafka is installed on a Windows machine, the Kafka broker cannot delete old log files. This is due to how it manages files on Windows operating systems. If you install Apache Kafka on Windows, it will eventually stop working because it cannot purge old log files, which can cause Talend Data Preparation, Talend Data Stewardship, and Talend Dictionary Service to stop working. Talend recommends to install Apache Kafka on a Linux machine.
