In the new version of Session Manager (6.3 and above), the traceSM process is supposed to timeout and stop on its own. However, I was just trying to run it today and got this error
[cust@la-sessionmanager ~]$ traceSM ERROR: traceSM is already running. Only one instance is allowed.
Uh oh. I don’t know the root password so I cannot kill it. However, Avaya thought of this for me. Just run traceSM with the -k switch and all is well:
This kills the old process and runs a new instance for me. Just another thing that sounds simple once you know it.
