I'm having a wierd issue setting up a HA group in vSphere. I have created the cluster, and added both machines to it, but only one machine at a time will reconfigure properly to the HA group.
One host is fine, the other simply reports "HA Agent has an error"
However, if i put the 'good' machine into maintenance mode, the other VM will successfully activate the HA agent.
So now the other machine is fine, so why not take the orignal "good" machine out of maintenance so all is right... nope, now that HA agent has an error.
I can swap these back and for and the behavior is consistant. I can create another HA group, and move a non-working server into it, and the HA agent will reconfigure just fine. If I move another server to it though, then the new server again cannot configure its HA agent. Also, the HA group warning is just a no management network redundancy.
The error on the server tasks simply says "HA agent has an error" and doesn't give any type of description. The related events all pertain to disabling/enabling the HA agent itself, with no other connected errors.
Has anyone seen this before? What am i doing wrong?
