Ok, that's normal.

Still normal: silent when there's no error.

That's not normal :(
Look at the slurmd log on the node for a reason. Probably the node 
detects an error and sets itself to drained. Another possibility is that 
slurmctld detects a mismatch between the node and its config: in this 
case you'll find the reason in slurmctld.log .
