Okay so you are saying that the VM's generated from the appl description
cannot be used unless HDFS is first running inside the vm, because they
start YARN up, and YARN cannot start unless HDFS is running?
If so, wouldnt if be more appropriate to have a startup script in the VMs
which simple start HDFS and then start YARN?
Just asking to clarify the use of boxgrinder, not to critique the scripts
Im new to boxgrinder as well as somewhat new to YARN so if there is some
basics i should read up on first before attacking bigtop-deploy just let me
