I have a process with parent PID = 1.
kill -9 382 doesn't work. I am root.
What can I do?
root 382 1 0 07:29 ? 00:00:00 dsmrecall /ptstv/HVideo/2014/2014761/G201476100010007.mxf

The owner of the process is
root hence you should execute the
kill command as user
You can do it by running:
sudo kill -9 382
Or in two steps:
turn to be
root using one of the below options:
sudo su -
kill the process as user
kill -9 382
su allows to run commands with a substitute user and group ID. When called without arguments, su defaults to running an interactive shell as root.
