    METRON-499 Check for Metron Jar Fails During Quick-Dev Deployment

    When deploying with Quick-Dev, it fails when checking to see if the Metron 
jars have been built.  When checking the local file system, it attempts to 
obtain elevated privileges and fails.
    $ vagrant provision
     Running with ansible-tags: ["hdp-deploy", "metron"]
     Running with ansible-skip-tags: ["solr", "yaf"]
    ==> node1: Running provisioner: ansible...
        node1: Running ansible-playbook...
    TASK [metron_common : Check for Metron jar path] 
    fatal: [node1 -> localhost]: FAILED! => {"changed": false, "failed": true, 
"module_stderr": "sudo: a password is required\n", "module_stdout": "", "msg": 
"MODULE FAILURE", "parsed": false}
    When checking the local file system for the jar, Ansible attempts to obtain 
elevated privileges, since most of the tasks defined in the playbooks run with 
elevated privileges.  Elevated privilege is not needed in this case.  
    Tested by running on Quick-Dev.
