stopping service unsuccessful and locks remain in /var/lock/subsys directory
I read about locks inside /var/lock/subsys directory.
I have a service " service sipd start" . It creates a same filename sipd inside /var/lock/subsys folder. When it shutdown it removes the filename from the directory.
This is normal case.
sometimes i face a problem inside my server during peak hours.
At that time i try to stop the service. It is unsuccesful.
The lock is still present inside the directory.
Why is this situation happening during this time.
Why i am not able to stop the service sucessfully? Why isnt the lock getting removed when i try to stop the service.
Please tell me
thank you on advance.
