Hi Matt,

You might want to take a look at my Slurm Wiki, which focuses on CentOS/RHEL 7: https://wiki.fysik.dtu.dk/niflheim/SLURM. Complete instructions for Slurm installation, configuration, etc. is in the Wiki.

I’m brand-new to Slurm, and setting it up on a single RHEL 7.4 VM as a proof of concept before I deploy it. After following the instructions on https://www.slothparadise.com/how-to-install-slurm-on-centos-7-cluster/ (sorry, site not working now), I can get slurmd to start perfectly, but slurmctld fails to start with the following journalctl -xe; I was wondering if anyone has run into this or could shed some light on this…thanks in advance!
