[slurm-users] Slurmd not starting

Both folders exists under /var/spool/:

drwxr-xr-x  4 slurm  slurm 4096 Feb 13 15:34 slurmctld
drwxr-xr-x  2 slurm  slurm 4096 Feb 13 14:05 slurmd

Thank you for the tip, thinking about setting the slurm user to root.

Betreff: Re: [slurm-users] Slurmd not starting

there is very very a strong likelyhood that you have configured SlurmdUser=slurm and one of the following
1) there is no /var/spool/slurmd folder
2) the /var/spool/slurmd folder exists but is owned by root

make sure it exists and is owned by whatever SlurmdUser is set to

or change your SlurmdUser to run as root which may not be acceptable to you for security reasons but if you were to change this it makes "doing cool stuff" in prologs and epilogs easier as you can avoid complex paswordless sudo configs on all nodes.

I started the control deamon, but get this information:
$ systemctl status slurmctld.service
‚óŹ slurmctld.service - Slurm controller daemon
   Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/slurmctld.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)

$ sinfo
PARTITION AVAIL  TIMELIMIT  NODES  STATE NODELIST
long*        up   infinite      1   idle bayes

I tried to start the slurm deamon, but the timout exceeds. slurmd -Dvvv gives:

slurmd: error: chmod(/var/spool/slurmd, 0755): Operation not permitted
slurmd: error: Unable to initialize slurmd spooldir
slurmd: error: slurmd initialization failed

Does someone know whats going on?

Thanks,
Nathalie
