I can kill pmd with kill -9 on AIX 4.3.1 with no problem.  There is nothing in
pmd code to rpevent this from happening.  I suggest you have an AIX issue.

I had yesterday the same problem.

The kill -9 to process pmd can't help. I must reboot the AIX.

My environment was also AIX 4.3.2.

Betreff:  [NV-L] ovstop does not complete

runnning Netview 6, AIX

I need some assistance in resolving the following matter:

1. All is okay if we start the Netview daemons, ovstart, and issue nv6000
start the gui.
 We wait for the synchronization to complete then shutdown all the gui's
issue an ovstop.
 The ovstop takes about 2-5 minutes to complete.
2. now if we repeat step1 above with the exception of shutting down gui's
and issue an ovstop and let netview
 run for a day or two before shutting netview down, then the ovstop
does not complete.

 When I canceled it, CTRL-C, I got "ovspmd: stop: aborting"
  "ovstop: unable to receive status message from ovspmd: Connection timed

2.1 Following is the output , ps -ef|grep OV, of the Netview processes :

 root 11404 22452  98   Jun 01      - 1009:42

    root 24266 22452   0   Jun 01      -  0:00 /usr/OV/bin/nvsecd -O

Note: I followed the documentation applicable to our setup in the Release
Notes. I have not done much customization except for the netmon.seed file
which excludes non-snmp objects. This is not an upgrade from 5.1.2 it is
new installation.

I need to know what to look for in order to resolve the problem that
prevents ovstop to complete.
