[slurm-users] Reservation vs. Draining for Maintenance?

Later this month, I will have to bring down, patch, and reboot all nodes in
our cluster for maintenance. The two options available to set nodes into a
maintenance mode seem to be either: 1) creating a system-wide reservation,
or 2) setting all nodes into a DRAIN state.
I'm not sure it really matters either way, but is there any preference one
way or the other? Any gotchas I should be aware of?
