    which OS are you using?

    It's "db2stop force" or "db2 force application all". Both do different things.
    Also it's "kill -9 <PROCESSID>".

    Maybe you should start with:

    I am using Linux....
    i tried to stop all applications as well as the database, which did not help in stopping the fenced user.
    and "kill -9 <PROCESSID>" kills it at the OS level...(which is not advisable)
    i just wanted to know the db2 command to kill the fenced users???

    and thank you for the manual...i was able to apply the fix pack.
