Problem is caused by
BIGTOP-2490 that assumes only puppet managed orchestration. Thus, breaks other method of deployment .
Cause of the problem:
File bigtop-packages/src/common/spark/spark-worker.svc was changed to look for value $SPARK_MASTER_URL (line 47). This value is defined only in file spark-env.sh (bigtop-deploy/puppet/modules/spark/templates/spark-env.sh) that gets only initialized during puppet deployment.
I propose to remove
BIGTOP-2490 and update Bigtop 1.2 repository asap, Hopefully we will have a proper fix soon.
