It is my first time using VNC, not really sure how to use it..
I followed the document "how to VNC into the SCC Data Center from Windows", and changed to gnome desktop as said in the xstartup file.
when I ran the VNC viewer, it said:
"too many security failures"
And I checked the passwd file in the /.vnc directory. It doesnot appear to be the one I typed in. Some encryption here?
What do I miss?
Are you coming in from Windows? What are you using for a vnc client. We use realvnc or ultrvncviewer. There is no need to install a vnc server on your Windows desktop. You can change your password (just the vnc password) on the MCPC with the command vncpasswd.
My xstartup looks like this ...
tekubasx@marc101:~/.vnc$ cat xstartup
vncserver -kill :1
Permissions are ....
tekubasx@marc101:~/.vnc$ ls -l xstartup
-rwxr-xr-x 1 tekubasx tekubasx 44 2011-02-01 18:40 xstartup
tekubasx@marc101:~/.vnc$ ls -l passwd
-rw------- 1 tekubasx tekubasx 8 2011-02-01 18:37 passwd

Oh, this was a bug. This used to happen. There's a configuration fix that I've forgotten. Does anyone remember? I can find it in my notes. We discovered this even before we set up Bugzilla ... otherwise it would be in there.
Still waiting for the configuration fix.
I was hoping someone else would remember. I filed this as bug 236.http://marcbug.scc-dc.com/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=236
Please make yourself a Bugzilla account and track it there.
I can VNC into DC machines without this problem. What we can do is login as you, (temporarily change your pw), watch what happens and adjust your configuration as appropriate. I see your account on marc022. Is that correct. Not all the cores are booted and your login is from May 18. Please pick a time (I'm PDT, West Coast, USA) and post it in the bug's comment and I'll reboot your system and check out VNC for you.
