Another possibility is that "execvp" call, i.e., means to run this very
agent, failed at a fundemental level (could also be due to kernel's
security modules like SELinux, seccomp, etc. as already mentioned).

Do other agents work flawlessly for you?

In fact lrmd (along with stonithd) is an exception in the daemons'
conglomerate as it runs as root:root, so as to portably handle
execution of the resources that, naturally and in general, require
execution with as high (here: inherited), privileges.
