Vinod Kumar Vavilapalli commented on YARN-1861:
-----------------------------------------------

bq. Without the core code change, this testcase will fail. Because NM is trying 
to connect the active RM, but neither of two RMs are active. So, the NPE is 
expected.
Can we make this explicit, instead of being an NPE? Like doing a client call to 
find the current active RM or something like that?

Tx for the explanation of all the cases, Xuan.

bq. That looks hacky, but doesn't require new external interventions to 
explicitly handle it. Vinod Kumar Vavilapalli - do you think that would be a 
better approach?
That is what I was thinking, but I am concerned about locking etc. This code 
has become a little convoluted. Per Xuan, we seem to be safe for now, so may be 
look at this separately?
