Previewing the change

You can test the new system software module defaults ahead of the change with the command:

source $EPCC_PE_RELEASE/nov2015

This will set the default modules to the set specified above.

Note: scientific software module defaults are not changed using this mechanism and any changes need to be manually applied.

Reverting to current environment after the change

Once the change has been made, you can revert to the old defaults with the command:

source $EPCC_PE_RELEASE/jan2015

This will set the default modules to the old set specified above.

Note: scientific software module defaults are not changed using this mechanism and any changes need to be manually applied.
