RHEL 7 VNC Setup - "Oh no! Somethign has gone wrong"

If RHEL 7 was installed as a minimal install
 yum grouplist
Available environment groups:
   Minimal Install
then setting up vnc by installing tigervnc-server would result in following screen when login with a vncviwer.
Installing X windows did not resolve the issue
yum groupinstall "X Window System"
The minimal installation does not have any GUI related components as such the vnc has no desktop to connect to. Installing KDE desktop
yum groupinstall "kde-desktop"
or the GNOME the default desktop for RHEL7
yum groupinstall GNOME
resolved the issue.
