Can you kill a TCP session in CLOSE_WAIT  state?

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anybody had encountered the following problem:  access using ssh,http or console to the filler stopped simultaneously although the rsh is still working.

As a result we can still manage the filler using rsh but not any other tools (including System Manager).

I've noticed that they are a whole bunch of tcp sessions in CLOSE_WAIT (more than 150) state from a single IP to the filler on port 443, andf I suspect that it might be the problem.


We're running NetApp Release on FAS 3200 but I've seen this behavior on some other versions as well and on some different hardware architecture like FAS 3020.


As soon as the filler is restarted everything starts working normal.


Any suggestions for how to kill this sessions, or is that possible at all?
