    So after upgrading one of my boxes (new CPUs, latest Bios, new Housing) I experienced an issue with HA on my ESX box:

    I tried for ages to find a reason yesterday, and today tried reinstalling - no avail.
    I used a host profile to reconfigure dvswitch and everything, so maybe that also encompassed the reason for the HA issue, but I have found no way to fix this :(

    Any ideas before I remove the customizations and then start recreating everything from scratch?

    So disconnecting *and* removing from inventory helped with that particular error, but of course thats only a trade for another one...

    Turns out that a host profile does *not* actually create the vm kernel modules on the target host just add its to the switch and *pretends* it did the heavy lifting.

    Manually created all my vmk's again (since you still can't do that from cli for a dvswitch afaik)... and now we are again at:

    So much fun ...

    Ok, rebuilt the box from scratch now, as soon as I add it to the cluster - same HA error again...

    Makes me start to think there is something wrong with the installation drive (32GB SATA DOM)... will switch to a regular SSD...

    Nope, same issue.
    So the only thing left that I can think of is downgrading the bios again... else I am lost :(

    Yeah, thanks:)
    If it only were so easy;)

    ls /var/run/log/fdm-installer.log
    ls: /var/run/log/fdm-installer.log: No such file or directory

    Edit1
    But thanks, your KB linked to this (outdated) KB VMware Knowledge Base which describes copying from Windows vcenter (which I dont have).
    But then I looked at my VCSA and found I can't see the vib there at all... so maybe its not the box but the current vcenter appliance patch level...
    This box is the first/only I added to the cluster with the latest release so that might be it ... makes way more sense than a bios issue ...

    Edit2:

    So and this greets me when I log in to vcenter mgmt:

    Incomplete installation might explain a bit;)
    Very weird that all else was working fine, have not noticed that in days with
    upload_2019-2-12_8-38-37.png

    Edit3
    Nope. Failed over to second box, looks good there (in admin gui), still same HA issue, still file missing on cli (vcsa)

    Just FYI, thats VCSA 6.7.0.21000

    Edit4:
    If I move out of the cluster, run Reconfigure for HA outside it works just fine.
    Then I move back into the cluster - broken again
    Also dvSwitch acting up, sometimes entries are missing, but exist on recreate... weird s**t

    Yeah; I didn't think the link would be the answer, but it might get you thinking about a vib or VCSA version mismatch holding you out. Tough to offer direct help when you're only an apprentice...

    No worries, really appreciate it.
    Gave up for now, began to believe its a bug.
    Will need to add another box to the cluster to verify that though.

    Second box has the same issue - so either its a bug or my VCSA has an issue...

    Can anyone confirm its working with their VCSA ( & HA Cluster) at 6.7.0.21000?
