SLURM Errors

  • When trying to submit a job, the following error message occures:
sbatch: error: Batch job submission failed: Invalid account or account/partition combination specified
    • Three steps: Delete the account within slurm, add it afterwards and set the default workgroup account:
sacctmgr delete user name=abcd1234 account=agtestgroup
sacctmgr add user name=abcd1234 account=agtestgroup
sacctmgr modify user where name=abcd1234 set defaultaccount=agtestgroup
    • Reason: The SLURM manager doesn't connect the user account to the standard work group properly when jobs are submitted.
      Technically this could be bypassed by adding account=ag<workgroup> when submitting the jobs.
