Subject Re: What are the appropriate steps before performing hardware maintenance?

Sorry, I should have mentioned before -- we are using CDH 4.2, which does not package the graceful_stop
script. Do you happen to know if there's a way to do this through the CDH manager? Perhaps
the "decommission" action does something similar? My impression is that "decommission" is
more heavy-handed, but if that's the most convenient route, that'll work for us.
