VMware Vcenter SQL listening port change

Hey Experts,
So we had a SQL server change.  The port on our SQL server was set to dynamic previously.  It was changed to a static 1433.  Since changing it Vcenter will no longer start which I am assuming it is because it is looking for the old dynamic port.....
Not realizing the effect this would have i did not write down the dynamic port number.  I cannot seem to find anywhere where i can change this port number in Vcenter.  

Any one know if it is possible to correct?
This is Server 2008R2 running Vcenter 5.1

This is from vpxd-XX log file, maybe it will hint at what is wrong?

Turned out to be SSO causing it.  Found VMware articular saying what to do.
