Upgrading ESXi 4.1.0 to 5.5

I am actually exporting the VMs in this 4.1.0 host, rebuilding the array and doing a fresh install of 5.5.

Are there any considerations for when importing back the VMs that were on 4.1.0?

Thank you!

After finish the import process, I will recommend you upgrade the VMware Tools.

You can optionally upgrade the virtual machine hardware, if you want to take advantage of new VM features,

BUT "as is" after import there should be no issues.
