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 188.8.131.522 on win 2k3 servers. chuck Christian Hack wrote: > > After I stop both cvsservice.exe and cvslock.exe (and confirmed they > have exited), I still see something is listening on port 2401. a cvs.exe > is still running.
