[slurm-users] [slurm 17.02] select/cray plugin from non-crays

Hi folks,

We've just upgraded to slurm 17.02.9 (native) on our Crays, but can't
get sinfo to work on them anymore from a non-cray

"sinfo: error: Cluster 'galaxy' has an unknown select plugin_id 108"

On the Crays we have
aelwell at galaxy-int:~/testjobs/native$ grep -i select /etc/opt/slurm/slurm.conf
aelwell at galaxy-int:~/testjobs/native$

and on the non-cray node I'm trying to get working (an admin node we
use for monitoring the job Qs across the site)

hpc-admin2:~ # zypper up
Refreshing service 'SMT-https_target_pawsey_org_au'.

Nothing to do.

hpc-admin2:~ # rpm -qa | grep slurm

hpc-admin2:~ # ldd /usr/lib64/slurm/select_cray.so
linux-vdso.so.1 (0x00007ffdf9db1000)

/lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x00007fcd381b9000)

hpc-admin2:~ # sinfo --version
slurm 17.02.9
hpc-admin2:~ # sacctmgr show clusters | grep gala
    galaxy         6817  7936         1


hpc-admin2:~ # sinfo -M galaxy
sinfo: error: Cluster 'galaxy' has an unknown select plugin_id 108
sinfo: error: 'galaxy' can't be reached now, or it is an invalid entry
for --cluster.  Use 'sacctmgr list clusters' to see available
hpc-admin2:~ #

Is there a workaround to get non-crays talking to cray slurmctlds?

Many thanks,
