Hi fellow slurm users,

Today I noticed that scontrol returns 0 when it denies a drain request
because no reason was supplied.
It seems to me that this is wrong behavior, it should return 1 or some
other error code so that scripts will know that the node was not actually


Slurm version: 2017.11.2
Platform: Debian
command run:
scontrol update node=${node} state=drain reason=""
scontrol update node=${node} state=drain
