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

By "minimal config" I'm assuming you mean "just enough config to get the
slurmd to run".  As far as I'm aware, you really need to have a complete
and matching config on each of your daemons- like slurmd literally won't
start with differing configs.  There is the "NO_CONF_HASH" debug flag to
get around that, but that's certainly not intended for production

It might be tedious, but you'll save yourself a lot of aggravation down the
road by copying the full config.
