All you need to setup is the path to the Slurm binaries whether they are available via shared file system or locally on the submit nodes (srun, sbatch, sinfo, sacct, etc.) and possibly man pages.
Probably want to do this somewhere in /etc/profile.d or equivalent.

I am new to SLURM and I am still trying to understand stuff. There is ample documentation available that teaches you how to set it up quickly.

Pardon me if this was asked before,  I was not able to find anything pointing to this.

I am trying to figure out if there is something like PBS-execution only for SLURM. Such that I can install it is the Login nodes and those nodes will only be responsible for the job-submission and not job execution.

Is there any particular package to install and is there a different config that needs to be put in the job submission only nodes ?

Basically, I want the job submission nodes to have all the commands and all the things that will enable them to get reports,logs whatever an admin and a user will need. Just not execution of the jobs.

Thanks in advance for your help.
