Remove PernixFVP: can’t remove device or resource busy

I found myself fighting to unistall PernixFVP VIB on some hosts and I using the command :

esxcli software vib remove --maintenance-mode -n "pernixcore-vSphere5.5.0" -f

I was getting the following error

“Output: rm: can’t remove ‘/tardisks/pernixco.v00′: Device or resource busy’

Daemon wasn’t running:

however some processes were still running:

Checking the Pernix unistall script at /opt/pernixdata/bin/

I realised there’s also a logger daemon which had to be stopped

stopping the logger solved the problem for me! vib unistalled!
