I just have a single gres.conf that's copied to all nodes, same as
slurm.conf. It lists NodeName=x Count=y Name=w for each node & gres.

I'm not using the :no_consume syntax, simply Gres=name:#,y:z,...
Of course after changes copy gres & slurm.conf to all nodes and
scontrol reconfigure works great for me.
