First question - under CentOS 5, if I created non LVM partitions on a server
with 6 disks - 2 disks are RAID 1 (OS), how do I remind myself or inquire the
type of RAID of the remaining 4 disks (RAID 1 or RAID 5), without having to
Second question - A newly installed server consisting of CentOS 5.2, straight
off the DVD, I invoke a command by hand, realize I want to kill it soon after
(logged in as root). I issue ps auwx|grep name_of_command, get the PID, and
issue kill -9 PID. ps auwx|grep name_of_command is still running.
The command is NOT part of any scheduled job. Why won't the process die?
How else can I kill it without a system reboot? The command does not get
invoked with a script, and is not a script itself - just a standalone binary.
I tried CNTL-Z and CNTL-C. I finally killed the terminal it was running from.
pkill doesn't work, either.
