I did as mentioned in the link but I am getting the below errors

[root at em2 sysconfig]# service vncserver restart
Shutting down VNC server: 2180:ankush
Can't find file /home/ankush/.vnc/em2:2180.pid
You'll have to kill the Xvnc process manually

Starting VNC server: 2180:ankush A VNC server is already running as :2180

In the /etc/sysconfig/vncservers

VNCSERVERARGS[2180]="-geometry 1024x768 -depth 16"

But there is no Xvnc process running

ps -efm | grep Xvnc
root     24091 23267  0 06:12 pts/0    00:00:00 grep Xvnc

I am not able to understand why it is giving error as I followed what
was mentioned in the below url


Thanks & Regards
