[slurm-users] Issue with AccountingStoreFlags after SLURM 21.08.4 upgrade

Dear list,

I just upgraded my cluster from SLURM 20.11.8 to 21.08.4. Before the
upgrade I updated my configuration based on this comment from the release

> -- Removed AccountingStoreJobComment option.  Please update your config
to use
>   AccountingStoreFlags=job_comment instead.

After updating the slurmd.conf I upgraded SLURM, but got this error:

> slurmd[21264]: error: _parse_next_key: Parsing error at unrecognized key:
> slurmd[21264]: error: Parse error in file /etc/slurm/slurm.conf line 119:
> slurmd[21264]: fatal: Unable to process configuration file

Then slurmctld drained all my nodes and all my jobs got cancelled. After I
removed the invalid AccountingStoreFlags option and restarted the SLURM
daemons on all nodes the jobs got rescheduled, but now all nodes are
drained due to "Duplicate jobid". *sigh*.

What happened here? Is this a bug? This is the messiest SLURM upgrade I've
had in years... thank you for any advice,
