Disable SDRS automated moves prior to the vCenter upgrade 5.5

Hello Experts ,

I was just reading somewhere it was mentioned that you should disable SDRS automated moves prior to the vcenter upgrade  from 5.0 to 5.5,. Leave it that way for at least 24 hours, past the upgrade Otherwise You lose all storage profile data when you upgrade the Inventory Service. This doesn't mean you lose the storage profiles themselves, you just lose the backing statistical data that the IO probe / SDRS uses to make determinations.

So what does that mean, should i disable the SDRS on cluster prior the upgrade or if not then what else should i need to look from the storage perspective ? Thanks
