vShield Manager / Edge Upgrade 5.0.0 -> 5.0.2

Hello vmware community,

I'm planning an upgrade of the vShield Manager 5.0.0 to 5.0.2 to prep for the vCloud Director upgrade from 1.5 to 5.1.

On page 34 of the PDF : https://www.vmware.com/pdf/vshield_501_quickstart.pdf

It says to do the following to upgrade your vShield Edge devices

Upgrade vShield Edge on each port group in your datacenter.
1 Log in to the vSphere Client.
2 Select Views > Inventory > Networking.
3 Click the vShield Edge tab.
4 Click Upgrade.

Since we have many vShield Edge appliances in our configuration I wanted to know if there was a way to upgrade them in bulk rather than clicking on each port-group, then vShield Edge, and upgrade?
Could I via the vCloud Director Administrative Portal reset all the NAT networks causing the VSE to be re-deployed bringing it to a newer version? We have at least 100 port groups in our configuration, so going through each port-group using the recommendation in the documentation will be very time consuming. My thoughts are if I can 'Reset Network' on each NAT network with a VSE then I can go about completing the VSE more quickly.

Thanks for your input,
