Hi again,

there is no stronger means than kill -9 in Unix to terminate a process!

If you really must get rid of this process, reboot!
If the process is only sitting there, consuming little or no resources, you could just leave it alone
and wait for a possibly planned maintenance to reboot.

Unkillable processes usually wait for some I/O to complete. Often a stale NFS handle is involved.
Did you check "errpt" for messages? Are there any network problems?

In case you suspect a bug in the Siebel software itself:
You could issue truss -p pid  to collect some information about the system calls the process does and hand it over to your Siebel support person(s) for analysis, if you have a support contract.

kill -9
should do the job, make sure you are killing the parent process, not the chid.

If you know service name, you can use below command to stop the service:
/usr/bin/stopsrc –s <service name>
e.g: /usr/bin/stopsrc –s inetd
