[Mauiusers] node allocation order

Let me ask my question in more detail.
We want only a certain group to use node 1-7 and so if there is any job 
submitted, it should first look into remaining nodes, and then in case 
all the remaining nodes( other than 1-7 ) are in use, jobs can run on 
1-7 by the other users too.
nodes 1-7 are also different from rest of the nodes in terms of 
processors and other resources.
Could anyone suggest me know what would be the right approach to achieve
