On an agent host it is required sometimes to uninstall and reinstall the agent instance.     Cleaning up the prior uninstall / install by moving metadata to local agent host, if a member of a Server Pool.   This will help make sure the fresh install performs well in agent and guests presentation in the EC's BUI.    This can avoid troubles later, when trying to add the agent host back into a server pool.

Please note that once an agent is uninstalled its Java DB domain model is removed.    If the metadata for the guests is not moved to the local /guests from the NFS share, the guests upon creation may note duplicate entries for those guests.    The act of uninstalling the agent removes the asset from a server pool, where the EC's BUI may still present it as active, it is not a member, which is why this document is noting to clean this up prior to the uninstall, to save on headaches and cleanup to clear the duplicate entries of guests and other metadata related issues.
