[slurm-users] What is the minimal configuration for a compute node

Dear list,

After configuring the head node it is usually recommended to copy the entire slurm.conf to each compute node to make the available in the cluster. While this generally works it can be quite tedious for more complex configurations with multi-level includes etc. Is there some minimal configuration for the slurm.conf on a compute to establish the communication with the head node and the other compute nodes? I am aware of configless but we structured the configuration in subfolders and only files next to slurm.conf can be copied / shared in configless. 

Thanks for your help.
