How to fix a missing PID file?
SLES 10.3-64b. I have a service that is running, but status check shows "unused". Navigating to /var/run/application I see the other services/processes have a PID file present but the "unused" service does not. Stopping the service returns "failed" but the service can them be started and is verified as running, even tho status check shows "unused". Can I just use vi to created PID file, enter the process number the service is currently running on, save the file, then restart the service? Will this fix it or make it worse? If this is not the way to fix the problem, then what is?
