I need to run about:telemetry on each hardware slave, this loaner will allow me to do that.  In addition, we need to figure out why tp5o_scroll isn't running as expected.
working on this...

I'm struggling to reset the password currently for root and cltbld on this machine at the moment... :/

I have the latest version of the passwords, not really helping. Not sure what I am doing wrong. Will check with colleagues when they get in.

Root password doesn't seem to be working, and cltbld password seems to be, but cltbld user does not have sudo rights to run either su or passwd....

[cltbld@talos-mtnlion-r5-007.test.releng.scl3.mozilla.com ~]$ sudo passwd

Sorry, user cltbld is not allowed to execute '/usr/bin/passwd' as root on talos-mtnlion-r5-007.test.releng.scl3.mozilla.com.

Ah, I worked it out! I could log in remotely as root user. :)

Next problem!

I've followed instructions under https://wiki.mozilla.org/User:Armenzg/VNC#Enable_legacy_VNC_and_set_the_password to set the vnc password, which I was able to do - but when I did a test connect, I could only connect using "root" and not "Builder" - and then I have the problem described here: https://wiki.mozilla.org/User:Armenzg/VNC#Mac_OS_X_10.8_-_Mountain_Lion - so I'll check with Armen what I should do next...

16:14:23 armenzg: pmoore|buildduty, in that comment on the wiki I'm saying in other words is that I never figured it out
16:14:43 armenzg: pmoore|buildduty, ftr, jmaher could run the jobs locally on that machine on the root user
16:15:04 armenzg: pmoore|buildduty, perhaps, there is a way to change the VNC settings on the root user
16:15:05 pmoore|buildduty: ah ok - so it is a general problem we have with mountain lion, that remains unsolved

16:15:36 armenzg: pmoore|buildduty, through the UI like removing the need to "grant authorization"
16:16:00 armenzg: pmoore|buildduty, if you figure out please add it there
I have been able to connect to a 10.8 slave with Remmina from Ubuntu 13.10 and from Mac 10.9 using Chicken.

I believe the trick is not to use Apple's Remote Desktop.
Thanks Armen so much!
I am finished with this slave, please add it back to the pool
