I think the concensus is to leave it. More trouble than its worth.

Did you upgrade from esx to esxi?

Yup did upgrade from esx to esxi. Now going to upgrade to esxi 5.0 just wondering is that going to give me problems?

should be fine.

you can always clean build if you need to, but the footprint is tiny so it shouldnt be a problem..

upgrade preserves your settings on the host,

clean install eliminates any errors from transferring over. and is quick.

if your setup isnt complex reinstall is the way to go.

Remove the host from vCenter and re-added it back and see if it fixes the issues as suggested here

sparrowangels… sounds like a good idea, i always like fresh installs instead of upgrade.
