[slurm-users] error: user <UID> not found

Hello all.

One of the users is unable to submit jobs to our cluster.

The first time he tries, he gets
$ sbatch test.job
sbatch: fatal: Invalid user id: 621049927
$ sbatch test.job
sbatch: error: Batch job submission failed: Invalid account or
account/partition combination specified

In slurmctl.log I see:
[2020-09-29T13:55:20.018] error: User 621049927 not found
[2020-09-29T13:55:20.019] _job_create: invalid account or partition for
user 621049927, account '(null)', and partition 'matrix'
[2020-09-29T13:55:20.019] _slurm_rpc_submit_batch_job: Invalid account
or account/partition combination specified

(621049927 is the user's correct UID).

I suspected a PBIS glitch, but both "id studenti#name.surname" and "id
UID" returned the correct info.

I found an old thread suggesting to add DefaultAccount, and I tried that
even if it was already done by the script that imports AD users in Slurm
# sacctmgr modify user studenti#name.surname cluster=oph set

The db seems OK:
# sacctmgr list user STUDENTI#name.surname WithAssoc

What am I missing?
