First, you must "telnet" directly onto the UNIX server. Do not logon to one
server, telnet into another, then run server manager.

Then, you must have the UNIX environment variable DISPLAY set. In my setting,
it is the IP address (of the PC), followed by a :0.0

For example, I do:

export DISPLAY=

Then, Server Manager will work. You can also do Server Manager in line mode
with "svrmgrl".

Best of luck,
