[slurm-users] Running slurmd without enabling jobs on a node

Hi all,

For a cluster in configless mode there appear to be two ways of having a
login-only node (i.e. not running slurmctld) - either 1) setting DNS
records or 2) "... consider running slurmd on the machine so it can manage
the configuration files, but not allowing it to run jobs." [A]

What's the best way of achieving option 2)? Ideally I don't want the login
node(s) which are running slurmd even showing up in e.g sinfo.

many thanks for any suggestions

Please note I work Tuesday to Friday.
