[slurm-users] Trying to update from slurm 19.05 to slurm 23.02 but I can't figure out how to allow users to reboot nodes...

I recently took over running a slurm cluster that among other things allows users to reboot nodes in order to have them re-configured for different kinds of tests. This is accomplished through the RebootProgram config setting.

But in the test environment I set up we seem to have lost that capability:

    [dlab04:~](N/A)$ srun -w skl01 -p sklcvl --reboot --pty /bin/bash
    srun: error: rebooting of nodes is only allowed for admins
    srun: error: Unable to allocate resources: Access/permission denied

I've gone through the man pages for slurm.conf but I can't find anything about how to define who the admins are? Is there still a way to do this with slurm or has the ability been removed?
