Hi all,

Apologies for writing something misleading in the last mail. I missed your
error message.

Rob was correct - your slurmd appears not to have the NVML flag on compile
You need to set up the NVML and turn the --with-nvml flag on when
configuring slurm to fix the issue if you are compiling one, or find a
binary package that complied with such flag on.
