Can't vMotion or Storage vMotion anything since upgrading vCenter to 5.0

Moved my vCenter server to a VM.  This moved me from 4.1 to 5.0.

Have 2 ESXi 4.x servers and 1 ESXi 5.0 server under the vCenter datacenter.

I can't move any VMs even when they are powered off (vMotion or Storage vMotion).

This is between the 4.x servers themselves or between the 4.x servers and the 5.x servers.  

When I try and do a Storage vMotion on a powered-off computer: Call "EnvironmentBrowser.QueryConfigTarget" for object "envbrowser-24" on vCenter Server "AGCV0099.domain.lcl" failed."  (where AGCV0099) is the name of the VM running vCenter.

It seems this is a known error by VMware. See here: http://kb.vmware.com/kb/2006615

Another person who had the same issue reinstalled vCenter Server & that resolved this error:

Have you checked vMotion is enabled on all hosts?

Have you checked all licenses are present on all hosts?

Shared Storage is consistent across hosts?

vMotion is enabled on 2 of the 3 servers.  The ESXi 5.0 server presently only has 2 NICs (LAN and SAN) and therefore should still be able to at least do Storage vMotion.  But it doesn't even make it that far; when I try and do anything vMotion related it fails with this message.

All servers are licensed.

Shared Storage is consistent, all are connected to the SAN, the SAN management console shows them all as connected and they are all running VMs on the same SAN LUN.
