ProcedureHow to Move a Running Process Into a New Task

This example shows how to associate a running process with a different task and new project. To perform this action, you must either be superuser, or be the owner of the process and be a member of the new project.

  1. Become superuser or assume an equivalent role.

    Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Using the Solaris Management Tools With RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration.

    Note –

    If you are the owner of the process or a member of the new project, you can skip this step.

  2. Obtain the process ID of the book_catalog process.

    # pgrep book_catalog
  3. Associate process 8100 with a new task ID in the booksite project.

    # newtask -v -p booksite -c 8100

    The -c option specifies that newtask operate on the existing named process.

  4. Confirm the task to process ID mapping.

    # pgrep -T 17
