SUMMARY: vxio process not running

It turns out that the monitoring daemon that was running the vxiod command
was not root, and so did not have access to some of the devices that vxiod
tries to check for.  Because of this it comes back w/ an unexpected (to the
monitoring program) error, and so incorrectly reports that the daemons were
not running.

The problem was to set the root execute sticky bit permission on the
'asroot' program that is supposed to call the vxiod program, it now has the
proper permissions and gets the results it is looking for.  Thanks much to
Adam Kirby for helping me with this.
