>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 1.5.1

> The exit code of the “ambari-server setup” command does not seem to be correct in
v1.5.1.  If I setup a VM with this version of Ambari installed, and simulate an error condition
(the JDK location being invalid), I notice that the error code returned by the command always
seems to be zero.  This can cause problems with any automated scripts that setup ambari-server,
since there is no way to determine if the setup completed successfully.  
> Here’s the output I’m seeing with Ambari 1.5.1:
> Log from attempting an ambari setup with an invalid jdk with 1.5.1:
> "[root@rwntwo ~]# ambari-server setup -s -j /opt/jdkNotThere
> Using python  /usr/bin/python2.6
> Setup ambari-server

> ERROR: Exiting with exit code 1.
> REASON: Downloading or installing JDK failed: 'Fatal exception: Path to java home /opt/jdkNotThere
or java binary file does not exists, exit code 1'. Exiting.
> [root@rwntwo ~]# echo $?
> 0”
> Even though the log claims that the process is returning an exit code of 1, the $? variable
contains zero.
> Since the setup command does not return an error code in this situation, there is no
way for an external caller to know if the setup has completed successfully.  This can cause
problems for the HDP integration with OpenStack in project Sahara, since the HDP plugin installs
and configures an Ambari server instance prior to starting up a cluster in the cloud.  If
the error code is not returned as expected, the plugin cannot detect the failure condition.
