VMWare Datacenter move

I have a server running vCenter 5, and we just installed a new server running vCenter 5.5. There is a Datacenter in the vCenter 5 I would like to move to the vCenter 5.5. Is there a way to do this without creating a new Datacenter and folders then moving the hosts one at a time? I ask because there are 22 hosts I need moved.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The 'Datacenter' you are referring to is actually just a container, which is linked to the vcenter it is allocated on.  Since they are 'containers' you will have to recreate the container objects on the new vCenter.

Here's a good blog article on the use of the datacenter object and how it works.
