vCenter Server update failed

Hi guys,

Unfortunately the Source Pre-Check fails for me when I want to perform an update.

The error message is "VMDir replication is not working correctly".

What happened?

- tried to add a vCenter Server 6.7 to the SSO domain
- failed (probably due to different versions. 6.7 vs. 8.0)
- but now the vCenter Server 6.7 is hanging around as a zombie replication partner on the vCenter Server 8.0
- tried to remove the vCenter Server 6.7 failed
- cmsso-util unregister as well as vdcrepadmin -f removeagreement have already been tried.

Does anyone else have ideas or suggestions on how I can remove the Zombie Server as a Replication Partner?

Viele Grüße/Kind regards,

Please check  vmdir state and service status

 /usr/lib/vmware-vmdir/bin/vdcadmintool

If it is in read only mode make it Normal

Did you ever get this resolved?  We have been stuck on the same error for a while now and unable to proceed with update.  Tried cmsso-util unregister as well.
