Hi all,

On my server `who` tells me that a jdoe is logged in. I just disabled
the account, but cannot force the already logged in jdoe out. What is
strange is that no jdoe login processes/shells show up in `ps -auxww`
and jdoe's shell in /etc/passwd was /bin/false.

After all this `who` still shows the person still logged in. Any idea
who to forcibly log this person out ?


% su - Password: # for i in `ps aux | grep jdoe | awk '{print $2}'`; do kill -9 $i; done # ps aux | grep jdoe | wc -l

The last line should return 0.
