Unable to delete a Kafka topic so that the replication factor for production can be changed. Found that could not be alter or delete the current topic.

The following output is seen:

[root@<HOSTNAME3> ~]# /opt/cloudera/parcels/KAFKA/bin/kafka-topics --zookeeper <HOSTNAME1>:2181,<HOSTNAME2>:2181,<HOSTNAME3>:2181 --delete --topic search
Topic search is marked for deletion.
Note: This will have no impact if delete.topic.enable is not set to true.


[root@<HOSTNAME3> ~]# /opt/cloudera/parcels/KAFKA/bin/kafka-topics --zookeeper <HOSTNAME1>:2181,<HOSTNAME2>:2181,<HOSTNAME3>:2181 --list

The parameter delete.topic.enable is set to true also.
