There should be no problem in restarting slurmctld.  It will only take a 
few seconds, and it will not disturb slurmd daemons on compute nodes or 
the running jobs, but you must check SlurmctldTimeout in slurm.conf by:

# scontrol show config | grep Timeout

Of course, you must first synchronize the slurm.conf file to all nodes 
in the cluster.

Perhaps my Wiki page about upgrading slurmctld will give you some 
further information:
