How do I get started using vCenter/vSphereWebClient 5.5?

I just did the Simple Install of vCenter of VMWare vSphere 5.5:

1. vCenter Single Sign-on
2. vSphere Web Client
3. vCenter Inventory Service
4. vCenter Server

Everything installed without problems.

Now, when I run vSphere Web Client on that machine, I don't see how to add or connect to my new vCenter Server.  Under inventory I have 0 for everything and don't see how to add anything.  If I try to read VMWare documentation, it all applies to 5.1 and doesn't seem to fit my installation at all.

Thanks in advance for any help with this.
