@dlm308rem Thanks for posting the question. Have noticed a similar issue post patch update. Can you try below steps:

- Check the FDM vib version on VC located in /etc/vmware-vpx/docRoot/vSphere-HA-depot/vib20/vmware-fdm/

- Compare the FDM vib on ESXi host using below command

esxcli software vib list | grep -i fdm

If VIBs are not matching (if ESXi shows older VIB version), please try below steps:

- Copy the latest FDM VIB from VC to the ESXi host (/tmp folder or to some datastore)

(sample file name from 7.0 environment - /etc/vmware-vpx/docRoot/vSphere-HA-depot/vib20/vmware-fdm/VMware_bootbank_vmware-fdm_7.0.2-17958471.vib)

- Remove the old VIB version from ESXi host using command esxcli software vib remove -n vmware-fdm

- Install the new FDM vib using command esxcli software vib install -v <vib full patch>

Sample result:

- Retry HA configuration

Adding on to what @baijup said, I've seen HA related issues post patching and below is one of the scenario where fdm failed to install due to dependency error. You can see the list of conflicting VIB's in /var/run/log/esxupdate.log or simply by running the following command

[root@esxi1:~] esxcli software vib remove -n vmware-fdm --dry-run
 [DependencyError]
 VIB QLC_bootbank_qedi_2.19.51.0-1OEM.670.0.0.8169922 requires qedentv_ver = X.40.28.0, but the requirement cannot be satisfied within the ImageProfile.
 VIB QLC_bootbank_qedrntv_3.11.33.0-1OEM.670.0.0.8169922 requires qedentv_ver = X.40.28.0, but the requirement cannot be satisfied within the ImageProfile.
 VIB QLC_bootbank_qedentv-ens_3.11.33.0-1OEM.670.0.0.8169922 requires qedentv_ver = X.40.28.0, but the requirement cannot be satisfied within the ImageProfile.
 VIB QLC_bootbank_qedf_2.2.52.1-1OEM.670.0.0.8169922 requires qedentv_ver = X.40.28.0, but the requirement cannot be satisfied within the ImageProfile.
 Please refer to the log file for more details.

Place host in MM and run the following command to remove VIB's

# esxcli softwrae vib remove -n qedi -n qedrntv -n qedentv-ens -n qedf

Reboot and reconfigure for vSphere HA from H5 client.
