I can not figure out why the following mpi script failed to start.

[siadati at rocks7 ~]$ sacctmgr list association
format=partition,account,user,grptres | grep siadati
   others        em1    siadati  cpu=6,mem=8G
[siadati at rocks7 ~]$ cat slurm_script.sh
#SBATCH --output=test.out
#SBATCH --job-name=lam
#SBATCH --ntasks=6
#SBATCH --partition=OTHERS
/share/apps/lammps-16Mar18/src/lmp_mpi < /share/apps/lammps-16Mar18/bench/in.lj
[siadati at rocks7 ~]$ sbatch slurm_script.sh
sbatch: error: Batch job submission failed: Invalid wckey specification
[siadati at rocks7 ~]$

The wckey explanation in the manual [1] is not meaningful at the
moment. Can someone explain that?
