Killing Ghost Processes in DataStage

how to kill GHOST datastage processes that can result if you are disconnected from the network while you have a datastage object opened. This results in not being able to open a job

1) Logon to DataStage server using a telnet tool like Putty with your DataStage userid

2) Run the following  command:

ps -ef | grep userid (userid is your userid)

3) Look for any process with dsapi_slave and kill them using this command

kill pid (process id is the first numeric column after your id)

till then.....
njoy the simplicity.......
