[slurm-users] slurmd startup problem

Setting –disable-frontend as option for configure in slurm.spec or on the configure command line ‘solved’ the issue.

Is this a known bug?

Subject: [slurm-users] slurmd startup problem


Hi all,

I’m using slurm version 20.02.01. After an OS update on a subset of nodes to sles15.2 the compiled daemon, using the corresponding build environment for sles15.2, fails to start with message:


# slurmd -D -vvvvv -f /etc/slurm/slurm.conf 

slurmd: fatal: PrologFlags=alloc not supported on FrontEnd configurations


Although the PrologFlags is set to ‘contain’ for all nodes. Unfortunately no further debug information is printed.

(This happens in the same way upon starting the daemon in configless mode)


Does someone has an idea how to debug/solve this issue? Many thanks in advance.
