This tutorial skipped one set of instructions to eliminate use of Yarn HistoryServer. These are the required steps:

Ensure “spark-defaults.conf” doesn’t have any YARN history service related properties enabled.

If this tech preview is installed on a node where Spark was already there, there may be Spark properties set related to YARN ATS. Make sure you have disabled the following properties in your “spark-defaults.conf” file by adding a '#' in front of each setting.

#spark.history.provider org.apache.spark.deploy.yarn.history.YarnHistoryProvider

#spark.history.ui.port 18080

#spark.yarn.historyServer.address org.apache.spark.deploy.yarn.history.YarnHistoryService
