The Slurm topology.conf file *must* match exactly the actual set of 
compute nodes.  You should not mess with topology.conf on any Slurm node 
because you will confuse Slurm and potentially create errors.  The 
topology.conf file must be identical on all Slurm nodes.

You can play with your own topology file, as long as you don't copy it 
to any Slurm node.  See "man topology.conf" for the format.
