Request Software Installation on SCINet
Before sending VRSC a software request do the following:
Make sure the software isn’t already available as a module by checking the lists of module software on the Software Overview page.
If you only need a different version of a software package that is already installed on CERES please email scinet_vrsc@USDA.GOV.
Consider whether you should install the software yourself in your home or project directory - see the Software Overview for more details.
You may want to use Conda for package, dependency, and environment management- see this guide about how to use conda on SCINet.
If you’re not sure whether you should install software yourself or if you need help, email scinet_vrsc@USDA.GOV. Software that will be useful to many SCINet users should be installed as a module by the VRSC.
How to send a software request
If you’ve done the above but need new software installed as a module, use the software request form (eAuthentication required, non-ARS users should contact their sponsor):
Note: doing this requires an agency-level security review and takes a few weeks.
