Another instance of the component is already installed on this server.

Anyone ran into this on their SQL server and know how to resolve this ? I've uninstalled the agent.

To clarify this is happening during the validation portion of the installation wizard.

Hi ,

i've seen this. Please check your Infrastructure Servers and make sure that only the Management Agent is installed. All other vRealize Automation components must be removed. Are you sure the SQL DB name you've selected earlier in the wizard doesn't already exist on the SQL DB Server?

I have just hit this couple of days ago, and documented my fix at: vRA Installation Error: Another instance of the component is already installed on this server.

I thought to share in case anyone else hit it. The issue basically that your previously failed vRA installation did not remove all the components it tried to install. Try to remove them using Add/Remove programs and try again. See my blog post for more details.
