You may need to install a systemd override file if you have some of
the system config left over, it has the path set to /usr/bin/. Example
for slurmd, slurmctld and slurmdbd are the same just changing the

cat /etc/systemd/system/slurmd.service.d/override.conf
ExecStart=/usr/local/sbin/slurmd $SLURMD_OPTIONS
