openQA test in scenario opensuse-Tumbleweed-DVD-ppc64le-yast2_ncurses@ppc64le fails in

two times same failure on TW 2020707

vnc service restart seems to fail.

Actual problem is soft-failure we have. So on the initial check port is still closed, so we try to start the service.
So I believe problem is that there is delay in the port openning, but service is running.
As test didn't fail in the last runs, we should at least remove soft-failure, and verify that service is running even when port is open.

It also would make sense to soften check, so we validate that port gets open in some time-frame (e.g. 30 seconds).

 sub check_service_listening {
     my $cmd_check_port = $is_older_product ? 'netstat' : 'ss -tln | grep -E LISTEN.*:5901';
     if (script_run($cmd_check_port)) {
         record_soft_failure 'boo#1088646 - service vncmanager is not started automatically';
         systemctl('status vncmanager', expect_false => 1);
         systemctl('restart vncmanager');
         systemctl('status vncmanager');
         assert_script_run $cmd_check_port;
