Re: Progress D/B

I'm not sure I understand what you're trying to do. Are you trying to log a particular user out of the Progress database?

If so, you should be using the Progress 'proshut' command, and not a unix 'kill' command.

Could you clarify a little bit?

If you know what tty the user is attached to

xx=$(ps -t $1|tail -n +2|cut -f2 -d" ")
echo kill -9 $xx

Then you get all process on that tty killed in 1 go

leave the echo to check first

Re: Progress D/B

Check for a good explanation on kill signals and how they relate to the Progress DB.
