Vcenter upgrade from 4.1 to 5.1 - DB issue

Hi,

I'm planning to upgrade our enviroment from 4.1 to 5.1 and I have this question.
I am considering to install a fresh DB and fresh VC.
I don't care about any statistics, only to maintain the current settings: datastores, VMs, DVswitch, vlans.

Is it possible to do such operation without any impact on the VMs?

datastores and virtual machines will remain as they are host based.

 vDS information is stored on a VMFS datastore, not the vCenter database.

 vDS is stored on shared VMFS within a folder called the .dvsData folder.

location is chosen automatically by vCenter and you can use the net-dvs command to determine that location.
