I need to add a new host to an ESXi 5.5 cluster.   My plan steps are to right-click the cluster>Add host, put it to maintenance mode and configure the VM Kernal ports and VM port groups.  

The ESXi version that comes with the new server is still 5.5 but the version is newer.  That should be okay, right?

Please advise if anything else I have missed.  

Thanks.
