The slurm docs say you can do two major releases at a time
"Almost every new major release of Slurm (e.g. 20.02.x to 20.11.x)
involves changes to the state files with new data structures, new
options, etc. Slurm permits upgrades to a new major release from the
past two major releases, which happen every nine months (e.g. 20.02.x or
20.11.x to 21.08.x) without loss of jobs or other state information."
As for old versions of slurm I think at this point you would need to
contact SchedMD. I'm sure they have past releases they can hand out if
you are bootstrapping to a newer release.
