The commands for starting/stopping daemons are OS and distro specific, scontrol 
is the Slurm command for interacting with the control daemon slurmctld.

I suspect the hard part is that there are some things that can only be set by 
restarting daemons as they require too deep rewiring of data structures inside 
Slurm (adding nodes is one of these things).

So for those "scontrol reconfigure" is not enough.  However, for the vast 
majority of cases it's the better way to do things.

All the best,
