I have two vCenter Servers, Production and Recovery Site, both Windows boxes, apart of same SSO domain, in linked mode and both at the latest build of 5.5. I am trying to upgrade my recovery site first to 6.0U2 using the migration assistant to create an appliance. The upgrade is failing in the pre-upgrade checker with the below errors in the migration-assistant.log:

Error: Failed to discover a system name that is compatible with both your VMware vCenter Server certificate and your VMware Single Sign-On certificate that can be used to migrate to a VMware vCenter Server Appliance with an embedded Platform Services Controller.

DHCP IP Address cannot be used as a system name to migrate to a VMware vCenter Server Appliance.
So I have done my due diligence and replaced the certs on the vCenter (Embedded deployment with external/remote SQL DB) but I am still getting the same error. I can confirm the certificates have been regenerated and applied successfully. Also did a complete uninstall and re-install to no avail.
