mdm13ws1 logged off

Problem(s) Encountered:

During early remote observing, in the beginning, MDM13WS1 may have either rebooted or had processes stopped. We could not start X11. Eric switched us to MDM13WS2, and everything worked.


It appears that somehow the machine was reboot at some point last night.  While I could ssh to it, vnc was not capable as obs13m.  I was able to vnc as root, getting to the login screen.  Once I logged in and the remainder of startup processes completed, I could once again vnc as obs13m.  It appears that X DISPLAY does not start prior to the login screen, disabling anyone except root from using vnc until the machine is logged into locally.
