  • Killing Veritas Running Processes

    Hi there,

    I had a a job running which was not doing anything and would not cancel or do anything, tried a few things to stop it to no avail, inc stopping / starting the Netbackup services to no avail. Now cannot open the program because I believe the net backup processes are stuck in a loop. I can see them from task manager, there are about 8 or so which I know are associated with Veritas Netbackup.

    I have tried to end the processes from task manager but get access denied. Is there any other way of killing them? Failing this I will have to restart the server and hope this does kill them, but I don't really want to do this if I can kill them myself?

    Any idea's?

    Cheers

    From the Task Manager, get the PID or Process ID. Then using KILL <PID> command from the Resource kit or Sysinternals (if it's still available) you will be able to stop any process you like as long as you have the correct security context.
    TIA

            Hi all,

            Thanks for the input. Fortunately I didn't need to use any of these options as the running jobs terminated (eventually) overnight and all is ok again now

            I also found the following MS KB articles to be of some help:
