I have subsequently come across a similar case.  In August 2017 I
created an account, a user and a corresponding association.  Today I
found myself unable to create a new association with a new user and the
account from August.  Looking into the Slurm database, I saw that the
account was missing from 'acct_table'.  However, trying to add it with

  $ sacctmgr -v add account agschmidt parent=chemie

gave me

  sacctmgr: Accounting storage SLURMDBD plugin loaded with AuthInfo=(null)
   No associations created.

I have ended up having to insert a record directly into the database,
which seems to have worked in that I was then able to create the new

This is all with 17.02.11.
