That is correct.  Just do "scontrol reconfig" on the slurmctld server.  If 
all your slurmd's are truly running Configless[1], they will pick up the 
new config and reconfigure without restarting.

  Beware that you can't add or remove nodes without restarting.  Also, 
changing certain slurm.conf parameters require restarting.
