I have a question to all of you that can help.
I have a Unix system running on a rs6000 from IBM. The system is used for
many tasks and one of them is to get some data from a database and
transferring that data to a Windows 95 workstation. This is a 24hours open
database. The users have to login to get access to the database. Making the
database more accessible I wrote a script logging the users automatically on
whenever the workstation is rebooted or when they logout. Now here comes
I have also written a script that shuts all databases, prevents users from
automatically logging in and performs a backup. Unfortunately the database
can't be shut because of the users logged in. I have tried the killall -
command but this was not very helpful. If I execute that command from the
root it seems to work just fine. But when I let a cron job execute it the
users can't log in any more because the access to the system is denied. The
only way that I can get the system running again is by logging in through a
console and reboot the system.
If anyone has a suggestion to get rid of this problem please let me now.
I would appreciate it if you could send your reply to my email address
Ps. I'm doing a manual back up until I find a solution to this problem.
