Please use HADOOP_PREFIX instead of HADOOP_HOME. The latter's been deprecated.

As you've found out, using the following is the correct way for
starting the MR2 Job History Server when starting via a tarball:

$ sbin/start-historyserver.sh start historyserver

By "embedded" do you mean a non-separate daemon for MR jobs? Or do you
mean start-yarn.sh itself starting the

YARN and MR2 (which uses YARN) are two separate set of components, and
hence start-yarn.sh doesn't also start the MR-specific job history
server. The JHS doesn't apply/work for any other apps of YARN other
than MR2 right now, so its not unified.
