Understood. Any diagnostics in the slurmd logs when trying to start
a GPU job on the node?

I feel your pain..  BTW RHEL 7.5 is out now so you'll need that if
you need current security fixes.

Well 17.11.6 will be out then that will include for a deadlock
that some sites hit occasionally, so that will be worth throwing
into the mix too.   Do read the RELEASE_NOTES carefully though,
especially if you're using slurmdbd!
