No, there's more.  In terms of the slurm.conf ... you will need to set the storage host so slurm knows where to go look for slurmdbd.  If you are enforcing any limits, you will need to set those.  I also set the job gather type.


You will have also have to make sure mysql is installed, slurmdbd is setup, and you have slurmdbd.conf file, as well.  You will have to create the accounts and users using sacctmgr, and possibly QOSs, depending on what you'd like to do.  It's not difficult, but there are a number of small steps. 

There's a document online that walks you through the process.
