You probably will need to post your slurm.conf to get a better idea, a parse 
error like that seems unusual.  It _might_ be that Slurm doesn't like the 
hyphen in the hostname, but I would find that unlikely, could there be extra 
characters, or the difference between DOS & Linux line ending conventions?

See this for more on that last point:   https://kb.iu.edu/d/acux
