That's exactly what happens with configless mode, slurmd's retrieve 
their config from the slurmctld, and will grab it again on an "scontrol 
reconfigure". There's no reason to stop slurmctld for this.

So your slurm.conf should only exist on the slurmctld node - this is how 
we operate on our latest system.

All the best,
