[slurm-users] Does the slurmctld node need access to Parallel File system and Runtime libraries of the SW in the Compute nodes.

I am new to SLURM, so please bear with me.

I need to understand whether the Server/Node running the slurmctld 
daemon will need access to the Parallel file system, and if it will need 
all the SW run time libraries installed, as in the compute nodes.

The users will login to the Login/submission nodes with their home 
mounted from say PFS1 and change directory to the PFS2 mount point and 
then submit/run their jobs.

Does it mean the Server/node running the slurmctld daemon will also need 
access to both the PFS1 and PFS2 mount points ? I am not sure.

The server running the slurmctld daemon will be exclusively for that and 
is not a login node.

Thanks & regards,
