Description of problem:
On logging into a node, PATH, LD_LIBRARY_PATH, etc., won't reflect the initialization specified in /usr/share/Modules/etc/rc. However, if one does "module list", it will report that the module files that are loaded by .../rc are loaded. And from there, they are loaded!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up /usr/share/Modules/etc/rc to load a module which prepends a unique path to PATH
2. (Log out and then in again)
3. echo $PATH
The PATH set by your rc file won't be listed.
4. module list
The module(s) listed in ../rc will appear.
5. echo $PATH
Your PATH now reflects the module file addition.
Until a "module" command is executed, the default module files aren't loaded.
Upon logging in, the default module files should, in fact, be loaded.
A simple fix would be to add "module refresh" as the last line of /etc/profile.d/modules.*
The environment-modules package is in RHEL beginning in RHEL >= 6. I adjusted the product field.
$ yum -q list environment-modules | cat
environment-modules.x86_64 3.2.10-10.el7 base
