Dear All, 

I am writing to you since I would like to have some information about the possibility to have a unique slurm server (Centos) controlling clients with Cento and Ubuntu installed on.

I already have a small cluster with 3 nodes controlled by one server. On all the systems the OS is Centos (7.3.1611) x86_64 with a kernel version Linux 3.10.0-514.16.1.el7.x86_64. 

Recently I decided to expand my computational resources and I bought 4 Odroid-XU4 (http://www.hardkernel.com/main/products/prdt_info.php?g_code=G143452239825) equipped with 4 eMMC (http://www.hardkernel.com/main/products/prdt_info.php?g_code=G150825660587) with Ubuntu (16.04.4 LTS) armv7l with a kernel version Linux 4.14.37-130.

At this point I wonder if it is possible to install slurm on the 4 odroids as clients and to control them with the server equipped with Cento. Alternatively, it exists a work around to do that? 

Or the best solution is to use one of the Odroid as a new server which control the others odroids?

Kind Regards,
