For new installs I'd go with 17.11.5.
We don't use RPMs, so I can't comment there.
Our model is to install to:
then we have a symlink /apps/slurm/latest that points to the current version
we want to be running in production and then we can just restart services as
we wish to pick up the right one (/apps is a shared read-only filesystem across
all the cluster nodes).
Our config directory is /apps/slurm/etc so again only one place to modify
things for all nodes to see the change.
All the best,
