Well, some things of course depend on the way things are set up on
your HPC system, but with "usual setups" it should work pretty much
anywhere. You might have to keep a few peculiarities of your system
in mind -- for example, if you indeed need to load a certain
environment module in order for NEST to run, then this has to happen
on the compute nodes where your job is run, too. In this case you
will have to either propagate some settings from your local
environment (things like PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH) to the compute
nodes -- or (and this is what I would do), load the right modules in
your job script(s).
The details will depend on your setup, installed software, used
queuing system/resource manager and other parameters, but in general
it should either work (almost) out of the box, or at most require only
little addiitonal work.
