You have to login as 'root' and kill the process with 'kill' just as any other linux process.

If you do not have root access, or if you have a slot based Director, it would be better to do an hafailover rather than just kill the process.


check if you have all services synchronized with hashow command and if all are ok, do a hafailover.
