That works!
I've added
export HOME=/root

Do I also need to add the erlang cookie dir to the PATH and export it?

Do I need to add flags to erl?

Is the 'HOME' environment variable defined?  This is a gotcha I've run
into in the past.

colm@REDACTED:~$ env - erl
erlexec: HOME must be set

However :

colm@REDACTED:~$ env - HOME="/home/colm" erl
Eshell V5.6.5  (abort with ^G)
