Cant kill process on AIX
Posted on 2011-09-05
I cant kill a process which is running on AIX 6.1.
I have tried kill -9/12/15 etc etc and all wont kill the process.
The process was a script which ran some progress 10.1c code, the code failed so I disconnected the pid from the database and now I cant kill it from the os.
ps aux shows
USER PID %CPU %MEM SZ RSS TTY STAT STIME TIME COMMAND
admin 7602286 0.0 0.0 11356 10752 - A 06:28:52 0:42 /usr/progress/
admin 7602286 1 0 06:28:52 - 0:42 /usr/progress/10.1c/dlc/bin/_progres -pf /lsl/live/stats/batch/statsload_ym/config/connect_stats.pf -p mp_transform.r
kill -12 and -9 wont work.
Any ideas? I dont want to have to reboot. This is a new power 7 server we have migrated too, is they some config we need to do for kill? I could kill the .sh script but not the pid for progress.
