-bash: -exec: command not found

What am I missing?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This will give you a list of process id's
ps -ef|grep "oracleBB60"|grep -v grep|awk '{ print $2 }'

Open in new window


To kill these processes, just give the output of the above (a list) to the kill command:
kill -9 $(ps -ef|grep "oracleBB60"|grep -v grep|awk '{ print $2 }')
