Unable to kill a process

[root@localhost crclient]# ./crclient -u PKT1800
./crclient: already logged in with process id 3202

[root@localhost crclient]# kill -9 3202

bash: kill: (3202) - No such process

[root@localhost crclient]# ps -ax|grep crclient
Warning: bad syntax, perhaps a bogus '-'? See /usr/share/doc/procps-3.2.7/FAQ
3108 pts/1 R+ 0:00 grep crclient

There is no process with id 3202. How can i terminate the process id(3202).

use 'ps ax' without the dash, but I would try this:

ps -ef | grep crclient

More than likely the process you seek has a new PID or it has died.

If you're sure that there's no such process, probably, the program left a lock file somewhere in the system, that needs to be removed. Look in /tmp or /var/run, the file probably has the .pid extension or is called lock.

Talking This is the solution !!

Just delete a file generated by the program crclient . It could be found in /tmp directory.
