[slurm-users] is there a way to temporarily freeze an account?

There are a lot of parameters controlling the resources which an account
and/or user can use. I suspect your default setup only uses a few of
them. To temporarily disable an account, you can apply a setting which is
disjoint from your normal methods.
E.g., if you normally set GrpTresMins to limit usage on an account to a
certain level, you might be able to temporarily set GrpJobs or
GrpSubmitJobs to 0 to disable the account from running/submitting
additional jobs. This should not affect the TRES numbers, so can just
remove the GrpJobs/GrpSubmitJobs restrictions when you wish to re-enable.
