[slurm-users] Problem with assigning user to partition

To be honest, yes that is confusing me!
sacctmgr shows the system user name under User column. I specified
that name for the AllowAccounts parameter in the parts file. Is that
wrong?
Is AllowAccounts the same as Account column in sacctmgr? Then I see local only

[root at rocks7 ~]# sacctmgr list association
format=account,user,partition,association
   Account       User  Partition     Assocs
---------- ---------- ---------- ----------
      root
      root       root
     local
     local      hamid
     local    mahmood



Regards,
Mahmood
