After starting a locator but before starting any server, gfsh deploy jar simply returns with No Members Found without storing the jars on the locator. As a result when a server is started, it does not receive the jar that was attempted to be deployed.
This is problematic because, I am trying to start a server using cache-xml that defines a PartitionResolver see
GEODE-878. If the jar containing the PartitionResolver is not deployed, the server won't start (gets a ClassNotFound). If no server is running, I cannot deploy a jar.
