root@rainkin:~# xauth -f $AUTHFILE add :0 MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 $COOKIE
xauth: file add does not exist
This means that $AUTHFILE was not set. I.e it’s empty.
Are you executing this? AUTHFILE=$HOME/Xvfb-0.auth
After that step you can do: echo $AUTHFILE to ensure that the variable was correctly set.
If you are using one of the terminal server range (you posted your topic in the section for this range of products) you can simply start a virtual session without having to do any of the above.
