Installed ArcGIS Server 10 Java on RHEL5 server.  Everything went fine.  Even built a few test maps.  Other projects took priority and I shut down the server for a few weeks.  When I booted back up the test server and tried to log into the Manager.  I received the error "Incorrect login information". 

I ran the diagnostic tool (<ArcGIS Server Installation Directory>/scripts/Server_diag_tool) which provided the following.

For more information about the diagnostics, please refer to ArcGIS Server web-based help:
or use the ArcGIS Server Manager Help

So I ran ServerConfig that gave me the following:
[INDENT]Beginning Task: Initializing..
   ERROR: Enterprise Core Services failed to start.
   Please check summary log file /opt/arcgis/server10.0/.Setup/configuration.log.  Detailed log files can be found at /opt/arcgis/server10.0/logs/Setup/configuration_logs.

Configuration did not complete successfully!!!

The output from the configuration.log is:[INDENT]
    Performing Initialization checks
    Performing Initialization checks
    Script owner check passed
    Script owner check passed
    Starting Enterprise Core Services..
    Starting Enterprise Core Services..
   ERROR: Enterprise Core Services failed to start.

The output from init.log is:
[INDENT]Failed to start Core Services: No permissions.[/INDENT]

And this is where I am stuck.  What is the next process?  Reinstall ArcServer?  Or is there a fix for this?  I want to try to fix this so I will know what to do if it happens again.
