After I used "kill -9 3274" to terminate sshd(PID:3274), I find sshd is still running,
ps aux | grep sshd root 3274 0.0 0.0 5728 510 ? Ss Jul21 0:00 /usr/sbin/sshd
however, "service sshd status" displays,
sshd is stopped
I try to restart sshd now, but it can't restart itself. How can I start sshd now? (I can't reboot the server)
I issued the kill command as root, and found sshd.pid doesn't exist under /var/run/. However, 'ps aux | grep sshd' displays sshd is always running.
