/bin/bash: Resource temporarily unavailable

Encountered an error when I was trying to su to a user:


# su -s /bin/bash user
su: /bin/bash: Resource temporarily unavailable

ps showed they had many processes open, which was hitting a limit.

# ps aux | grep user | wc -l

Resolved by killing all their processes.

kill -9 $(ps aux | awk '/user/ {print $2}')
