hi,

OES2 with AFP service, with some reason, the afptcpd have zombie with 'defunct' show, I can able to kill zombie of afptcpd, but unable to afptcpd daemon with 'kill -9 pid', how can kill the dead daemon of afptcpd?

student:~ # ps aux|grep afptcpd
root 9904 0.0 0.4 246456 30232 ? Dsl Aug18 0:41 /opt/novell/afptcpd/bin/afptcpd
root 27457 0.0 0.0 1908 688 pts/0 S+ 09:40 0:00 grep afptcpd
root 29929 0.0 0.0 0 0 ? Zsl 03:01 0:02 [afptcpd] <defunct>

I observe the 'Dsl' in the STAT column, with 'D' indicated, I can kill this process, I must restart whole server to resume AFP service.

Any idea to kill?
