[slurm-users] Maxjobs not being enforced

Hello Slurm user,

We have 'AccountingStorageEnforce=limits,qos' set in our slurm.conf. I've
added maxjobs=100 for a particular user causing havoc on our shared
storage. This setting is still not being enforced and the user is able to
launch 1000s of jobs.

I also ran 'scontrol reconfig' and even restarted slurmd on the computes
but no luck. I'm on 17.11. Are there additional steps to limit a user?
