It's working here - though we got caught out with that because the IP 
address was being resolved to the FQDN of the node and not the short 
name we had in our config file.

To see what your system is resolving the IP address to now use scontrol 
to set your debug level to "debug2" and see what it reports when the 
test fails (it would be nice if Slurm actually logged that as an error).

All the best,
