Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

This is a common problem for us.  Every few weeks we need to restart the 
services (for problems similar to the ones that you described at the 
start of this thread), and after stopping the service we have to 
manually kill off between 2 and 20 zombie processes on the server.  They 
aren't using any CPU, but they seem to keep the service from starting. 
We've just come to accept that there will be zombies.  It is a bit more 
annoying to log into the servers just to restart the service.

We run cvsNT on win 2k3 servers.
