[slurm-users] slurmd -C showing and incorrect number of cores.

I am running a slurm client on a virtual machine.  The virtual machine
originally had a core count of 10.  But I have now increased the cores to
16, but "slurmd -C" continues to show 10.  I have increased the core count
in the slurm.conf file. and that is being seen correctly.  The state of the
node is stuck in a Drain state because of this conflict.  How do I get
slurmd -C to see the new number of cores?

I'm running slurm 18.08.  I have tried running "scontrol reconfigure" on
the head node.  I have restarted slurmd on all the client nodes, and I have
restarted slurmctld on the master node.

Where is the data about compute note CPUs stored?  I can't seem to find a
config or setting file on the compute node.

The compute node that I am working on is "liverpool"

*mtie at liverpool** ~ $* sinfo -n liverpool -o %E


Low socket*core*thread count, Low CPUs

Any advice?
