I would *currently* avoid the Debian (Stretch) packages like the plague:
the last update tried to (re)start slurmctld which -- surprise, surprise 
-- fails on every node that's not the master with an exit code that 
leaves the packages unconfigured.

That raises the question if anyone did bother to test them on a 
multi-node cluster

I'm still hoping I messed that up and not the maintainer. Maybe I expect 
to much from an "apt upgrade" nowadays...
