    Accepted Solution

    You should first try to shut down the CDC server -
    dmshutdown -I
    and if this doesn't help
    dmterminate -I
    But you might be right - because all the processes above are running under parent 1 (= init) it could be that a simple restart of the CDC server will not help.
    If this is the case,  first kill all processes containing "dmupdate" in their command -
    echo kill $(ps -ef | grep dmupdate | awk '{print $2}')
    The echo above will show you what the command is going to do. If the results are as expected, run it without echo.
    Check again if any processes are left. If so, reapeat the above command replacing "kill" with "kill -9"
    This should finally get you rid of those beasts.
    Make sure that you actually ran dmshutdown or dmterminate, then restart the CDC server using
    dmts64 -I
    Good luck!
