Hello Everyone,

New here and very new to slurm and hopefully someone can shed some light on this for me.  I’m in the process of setting up a single node slurm environment with nvidia a100.  I keep getting the error We were configured to autodetect nvml functionality, but we weren't able to find that lib when Slurm was configured.  when trying to start slurmd.  When removing GresTypes=gpu from slurm.conf slurmd starts up fine and can queue up and run jobs.  Cuda toolkit is installed along with NVIDIA Management Library (NVML).  I went as far as removing slurm and reinstalling to see if it would pick it up.  No go.

OS Ubuntu 20.04,  slurm.conf GresTypes=gpu is added, gres.conf AutoDetect=nvml Name=gpu Type=a100 File=/dev/nvidia0 COREs=0,1

I’ve searched around and see that many others have run into this but I haven’t found a fix yet.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
