[slurm-users] sacct thinks slurmctld is not up

I have slurmdbd running and everything is (mostly) happy. It's been working
well for months, but fairly regularly, when I do 'sacctmgr show runaway
jobs', I get:

*sacctmgr: error: Slurmctld running on cluster orion is not up, can't check
running jobs*

if I do 'sacctmgr show cluster', it lists the cluster but has no IP in the
ControlHost field.

slurmctld is most definitely running (on the same system even), but the
only fix I find is to restart slurmctld. Then I can check and there is an
IP in the ControlHost field and I am able to check for runawayjobs.

Is this a known issue? Is there a better fix than restarting slurmctld?
