> slurmd -C confirms that indeed slurm understands the architecture, so that’s good.  However, removing the CPUs entry from the node list doesn’t change anything.  It still drains the node.  If I just remove _everything_ having to do with those counts from the node list item it just picks 1 cpu.

Interestingly, it looks like maybe the only problem was that I had to manually set the state to Resume.  I was playing around with different settings for various properties, and definitely had things screwed up in a way that would trigger a drain state at some point.  Apparently after I fixed the situation slurm was actually OK with it, but just didn't reset the state properly.  Seems to be OK now, once I got all the items set consistently.
