Cannot install Fault Domain Manager agent for VMware HA after agent is uninstalled (2006034)

Cause

This issue occurs when the VMware-fdm-uninstall.sh uninstall script does not remove the package properly when it is run from the /opt/vmware/uninstallers/ directory. When HA is disabled from vCenter Server, the script is copied to /tmp and is run from there.

Resolution

To work around the issue, remove the FDM agent:

Caution: It is best practice to disable HA on the cluster before removing the FDM agent.
  1. Run this command to verify that the FDM package is still installed on the ESXi host:

    esxcli software vib list |grep vmware-fdm
  2. If the FDM package is still installed, remove it with the command:

    esxcli software vib remove -n vmware-fdm
  3. The removal process may take a few seconds. When the process is finished, run this command to ensure that the package has been removed:

    esxcli software vib list |grep vmware-fdm

    When you have confirmed that the package has been removed, re-install the FDM agent by either reconfiguring the ESXi host for HA or re-enabling HA on the cluster.
