The ILM partition cannot be dropped because of server processes being 'Still Active'. When checking the partition some CPs and WPs shows up as status "|'.
They also do not show up in the table MQSRV. Starting them also does not change the status.
Release : 12.3
Component : AUTOMATION ENGINE
These server processes need to be set to either ENDED_OK or ENDED_NOT_OK.
