I have a script that starts a 2 process backup stg on my disk to tapepool.
Sometimes a deadlock will happen and one of the processes will die.  It
takes too long to complete the backup with only 1 process running.   Since
the backup stg command is inside a script, if I cancel the last running
backup stg process the next commands in the script fire.  I have to cancel
these until the script completes and then restart the script.  This script
is similar to many I have seen posted.  It runs all the daily processing  -
backup stg on the pools, move drm, backup db, etc.  lots of steps I want to
keep in sequence.

Is there a way to cancel a whole script maybe?
Is there anyway to start another backup stg process when one is already

Are there any other options I am missing?

Any suggestions appreciated.
