Thanks for your detailed outline. One question that we have is, must we update vCenter from 5.1 to 5.5 prior to vCloud Director upgrade from 5.1.x to 5.5?

No, it is preferred to upgrade vCloud Director first.  this is as per our order of operation KB.

the real catch is if you have vCenter 5.0 and vCloud 5.1 ... then you may have other considerations.

"the real catch is if you have vCenter 5.0 and vCloud 5.1 ... then you may have other considerations." -- Is there a specific sequence/path that is supported to go from VC 5.0 and VCD 5.1 to VC/VCD 5.5?  We really want to skip the miss known as SSO (in 5.1).  I know you can upgrade VC/vSphere from 5.0 to 5.5 (but then VCD changes everything).  Any insight is appreciated.

Thanks.
