kill -9 doesn't kill a process ?

Hello,

Sometimes we are having problems with killing login shells. They
continue to live after a kill -9. Do you have any ideas ?

This appears on an NCR TOWER machine with Unix V.3.

1. A method to kill process that cannot be killed even with `kill -9'.

Try this method:
kill -9 non-killed-pid
/usr/proc/bin/prun non-killed-pid
/usr/proc/bin/pmap non-killed-pid
This method works perfectly with Solaris 6. Sometimes you can do it
without the "kill -9 non-killed-pid"

P.S. I don't know about other versions and about some hardware programs,
like tar.
