[slurm-users] Requested partition configuration not available now

Hi Mahmood,

this question is related to the slurm-roll.
The command rocks sync slurm has more tasks:

1. Rebuild of 411 is forced
2. on compute nodes, the command /etc/slurm/slurm-prep.sh start is executed
3. on compute nodes, slurmd is restarted
4. slurmctld is restarted.

Step 1 and 2 are required, to sync the config files.

Best regards
