CODA Startup

 From an accelerator machine: ssh -X idaq@opsmdaq0 

Note: idaq is the injector DAQ account and uses ssh authorized_keys for login - no need to enter password

Two ways to execute the following few steps:

% startcoda (then skip to Start and Stop a Run)
Or: Open few xterm & windows.
 xterm 1: % telnet iocmdaq1

 xterm 2: % msqld (the CODA msqld database is usually running unless opsmdaq0 was rebooted)
