Did you try
hadoop job -kill-task <task-id> ? And is that not working as desired?

Subject: fail and kill all tasks without killing job.
Hi guys : I want my tasks to end/fail, but I don't want to kill my
entire hadoop job.
I have a hadoop job that runs 5 hadoop jobs in a row.
Im on the last of those sub-jobs, and want to fail all tasks so that the
task tracker stops delegating them,
and the hadoop main job can naturally come to a close.
However, when I run "hadoop job kill-attempt / fail-attempt ....", the
jobtracker seems to simply relaunch
the same tasks with new ids.
How can I tell the jobtracker to give up on redelegating?
