[slurm-users] Issue with x11

Hi Mahmood,

To get native X11 working with SLURM, we had to add this config to sshd_config on the login node (your rocks7 host)

X11UseLocalhost no

You'll then need to restart sshd

I think I have asked this question before, but wasn't able to fix that. While "xclock" command works by "ssh -Y", srun with x11 option fails to opens xclock.

[mahmood at rocks7 ~]$ srun --x11 --nodelist=compute-0-0 --account y4 --partition RUBY -n 1 -c 4 --mem=1GB  xclock
srun: error: Cannot forward to local display. Can only use X11 forwarding with network displays.
[mahmood at rocks7 ~]$ sinfo --version
slurm 18.08.4

You can see the picture where xclock works.

Any thought?
