Issue/Introduction

Each prepared cluster in VMware NSX for vSphere 6.x must have only one ESX Agent Manager (EAM) agency. In some cases, you may see duplicate agencies for a cluster.

This article provides steps to delete duplicate EAM agencies in a cluster.

Note: There is no automatic detection or deletion of duplicate agencies. They should have no impact on running configuration or data traffic. However, duplicate agencies on a cluster can cause problems during upgrade. Therefore, VMware recommends to eliminate duplicate agencies.

Environment

VMware NSX for vSphere 6.0.x
VMware NSX for vSphere 6.1.x

  1. Check the vSphere ESX Agent Manager and verify if there is a duplicate agency:


     
  2. This list needs to be compared with the NSX Manager database to find and delete the duplicate agency in the EAM MOB.

    Note: The NSX Manager database is only accessible in tech support mode by VMware support. For more information, see How to Submit a Support Request.
