  • Vncserver is configured for multiple users as per the instruction given in KB-6605
  • When trying to start vnc daemon, it's starting for first three users only.
  • Getting following error for remaining users:

    Invalid null command.
    if: Expression Syntax.
    else: endif not found.  [FAILED]
  • Users are able to start vncserver using "vncserver :4" command.
