Thanks, I should have spotted that, although I don't understand the
difference between 'parent' and 'organisation' and in fact asked this
question:

 https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/slurm-users/f1vftgIRcVk

on the subject recently.

The dump indicates to me that a hierarchy is being set up via the
'parent' attribute.  The output of 'sacctmgr' and what you point out
suggest that there is a separate hierarchy defined by 'organisation'.

In any case, I can't work out the the correct syntax to set the
organisation.  The following doesn't produce an error but doesn't have
any effect:

  $ sacctmgr modify account where name=geochemie set organization=geowiss
  Nothing modified

and I still get:

$ sacctmgr list acc org=geowiss
     Account                Descr                  Org 
  ---------- -------------------- -------------------- 
  geographie           geographie              geowiss 
    geologie             geologie              geowiss 
   geophysik            geophysik              geowiss 
  meteorolo+         meteorologie              geowiss 

How do I set the organisation of an account?  And why is it necessary if
'parent' is set?

Cheers,

Loris
