Hadoop 2.0 Yarn does indeed have a share/ dir but Hadoop 2.0 MR1 doesn't have a share/ dir at all. Is MR1 not usable? I was hoping to use it as a stepping stone between older versions of Hadoop (for which I have found some EC2 support, not the least being an actual ec2/ dir and associated scripts in src/contrib/ec2) and Yarn, for which I have found no such support, provided scripts, or online walkthroughs yet). However, I am discovering the H2 MR1 is sufficiently different from older versions of Hadoop that it does not easily extrapolate from those previous successes (the bin/ directory is quite different for one thing). At the same time, H2 MR1 is also sufficiently different from Yarn that I can't easily extend Yarn advise onto it (as noted, I don't even see a share/ directory in H2 MR1, so I'm not sure how to apply the response above).

I figured, as long as I'm trying to us MR1, I would use it exclusively and not touch the Yarn installation at all, so I'm relying entirely on the conf/ and bin/ dirs under MR1 (note that MR1's sbin/ dir only contains a nonexecutable "task-controller", not all the other stuff that Yarn's sbin/ dir contains)...so I'm using MR1's bin/hadoop and bin/hadoop-daemon.sh, nothin else).

MR1's bin/ dir has no such executable, nor does it have the conventional start-all.sh I'm used to. I recognize those script names from older versions of Hadoop, but H2 MR1 doesn't provide them. I'm using hadoop-2.0.0-mr1-cdh4.1.3.

H2 MR1's bin/ dir doesn't have an hdfs executable in it. Admittedly, H2 Yarn's bin/ dir does. The following are my H2 MR1 bin/ options:
~/hadoop-2.0.0-mr1-cdh4.1.3/ $ ls bin/
