User stuck in AIX

Hello guys, new here so please take it easy on me :-). Here is my issue. We use an application called Medical Manager and it runs on AIX. There is a user that is showing stuck with in the application. However when I try to run any of "ps" commands I don't see it. I need to kill this user and I can't because I can't get the PID of this user.

Any ideas will be appreciated. Thanks.

Hammer & Screwdriver Try This

1:- ps -ef | grep <user_login_name>
then kill the process

2:- If you know the user login name (example here "sanjay" is user login name) then try this one

# ps -u sanjay -o pid | grep -v PID | xargs -i kill -9 {}
