You can define nodes in Slurm that don't exist yet with State=FUTURE,
that means slurmctld basically ignores them until you change that state
setting (either with scontrol or updating your config).
I've used that before, and in fact added some nodes in that state
yesterday on one of our test HPCs.
All the best,
