NSX Re-install - Agency already exists

Hi,

I am running into issues with a re-install of NSX-v.  I encountered issues when performing the initial install and I have had to reinstall from scratch.  I am now at the host preparation phase having re-deployed the NSX Manager and Controllers.  When trying to perform the host preparation phase I receive the following error:

  • Agency 57da0b8f-7db4-4e38-b488-be775a6e6dd6 already exist for cluster ************. Delete this agency from EAM database.

I am using vSphere 6.7 with NSX-v 6.4.3.  I have tried to find the the duplicate entry via the following the KB VMware Knowledge Base

However I cant find a duplicate / erroneous entry that is causing the issue.

I am not sure where to go next.  Any suggestions?

Thanks

Hi,

I too experienced similar issue and tried rebuilding the host which has resolved the issue.

If you are sure all NSX objects clean up has been done properly and still getting this error. Create a new cluster and add the existing host to that cluster and do a test preparation followed by a clean up and adding to old cluster and re-try the operation.

Try to put the host into maintenance mode & move the host to Data Center (Remove from cluster)

Reboot the host once & then add back to the cluster.

This should resolve the issue.
