In https://bugs.schedmd.com/show_bug.cgi?id=15470#c3 you can read:

> When making a change from cons_res to cons_tres there isn't much you need to do.  These two select type plugins are very similar.  The difference being that the cons_tres plugin adds much more functionality related to GPUs.  If you're moving from cons_res to cons_tres there shouldn't be any effect on the running jobs.  If you were changing from cons_tres to cons_res and you had jobs on the system that used the new syntax that is available for GPUs, then you would run into problems.  For your reference, this is described in the documentation here:
