I am seing the following error when bringing up a cluster before parittion are defined.

[2022-11-29T21:39:33.595] debug: Reading slurm.conf file: /etc/slurm/slurm.conf [2022-11-29T21:39:33.596] No memory enforcing mechanism configured. [2022-11-29T21:39:33.597] topology/none: init: topology NONE plugin loaded [2022-11-29T21:39:33.597] debug: No DownNodes [2022-11-29T21:39:33.597] fatal: No PartitionName information available!
[2022-11-29T21:39:33.599] slurmscriptd: debug: _slurmscriptd_mainloop: finished


Does this mean that slurmctld service can not be brought up until after partitions are defined?

I'd kind of like to define a head node, including slurm config, and then define compute resources and add them to the existing config.

Thanks for any insights!

Best,
Blake

Hi Blake,

What you could try, to do that, would be to use the latest slurm on gcp (I believe version 5.2), and enable the `enable_reconfigure` field. This, through the enabling of a pub/sub queue, would allow you to push, using terraform, changes to your partitions and configurations and probably allow you to do what you are looking for?
