Can't connect to Host with vCenter Converter 4.0.1 to VMware 5.5 Host. I did rebuild my machine, since using the converter last. I can login to Host, my machine or vCenter server and use nslookup and ping, with all correct look ups and good to go replies.

at step 2, Host/Resource I get an error.... Unable to validate the destination. Error: vmodl.fault.SystemError

4.0.1 does not support ESX 5.x
use the standalone converter 5.5.3 for an ESX 5.x system
