You have probably killed one of the AIX init processes. I suggest you reboot and not kill that process again.

In AIX, the process -1 represents "all processes." What you did is send a kill -9 to all the running processes on your system. Bad move. As nails said, a reboot is the only recovery option. Since you killed everything, the only way to reboot is to issue a non-maskable interrupt via the power button (or do an immediate shutdown on the LPAR via the HMC and then activate it).

The only use one would have for issuing a kill -9 -1 is to test HACMP. Other than that, the only purpose I can think of is to test the patients and tolerance of ones manager in regard to what it takes to get fired.

Remember:

To err is human. To really foul things up requires the root password.
