I'm trying to kill a process by a user other than myself on macOS High Sierra, but still getting an error even with
$ sudo kill 108 kill: 108: Operation not permitted
The PID does exist:
$ ps ux -p 108 USER PID %CPU %MEM VSZ RSS TT STAT STARTED TIME COMMAND _sentinel 108 3.6 1.5 5364180 245992 ?? Rs 23May19 149:15.88 /Library/Sentinel/sentinel-agent.bundle/Contents/MacOS/sentineld
How can I diagnose why
sudo kill is failing? Is it because of System Integrity Protection? If so, how do I disable the relevant attributes on the process so that
sudo kill succeeds?
I'm not looking to disable SIP globally, since the process in question belongs to SentinelOne (not a core macOS pre-installed application).
