I am getting the same issue.

>                 Key: YARN-3997
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-3997
>             Project: Hadoop YARN
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: fairscheduler
>    Affects Versions: 2.7.1
>         Environment: Ubuntu 14.04, Hadoop 2.7.1, Physical Machines
>            Reporter: Dan Shechter
>            Assignee: Karthik Kambatla
>            Priority: Critical
> When our cluster is configured with preemption, and is fully loaded with an 
> application consuming 1-core containers, it will not kill off these 
> containers when a new application kicks in requesting containers with a size 
> > 1, for example 4 core containers.
> When the "second" application attempts to us 1-core containers as well, 
> preemption proceeds as planned and everything works properly.
> It is my assumption, that the fair-scheduler, while recognizing it needs to 
> kill off some container to make room for the new application, fails to find a 
> SINGLE container satisfying the request for a 4-core container (since all 
> existing containers are 1-core containers), and isn't "smart" enough to 
> realize it needs to kill off 4 single-core containers (in this case) on a 
> single node, for the new application to be able to proceed...
> The exhibited affect is that the new application is hung indefinitely and 
> never gets the resources it requires.
> This can easily be replicated with any yarn application.
> Our "goto" scenario in this case is running pyspark with 1-core executors 
> (containers) while trying to launch h20.ai framework which INSISTS on having 
> at least 4 cores per container.
