I have a centos 6 server that acts as my mail MTA. The  server boots but does not get to the login prompt. If i ssh to it i can login and all the services for email work as normal, just no login prompt when i plug in a monitor, keyboard and mouse.

Has anyone seen similar issue and figured out a way to resolve it. So far it hasnt caused any problems, but I am not comfortable with the way things are working currently.
