So have 2 hosts currently being managed by a vcenter 5.1 server, though that server has become inaccessible, I have a brand new host with 5.5 and i was going to create a new vcenter server.  Is there a trick to move the hosts so i can manage them under the new vcenter?  I have licensing for 3 hosts for 5.5

Assuming you're not using distributed switch, just add the hosts to the new vCenter and this should work without problem. There is no need to disassociate the host from the old vCenter since your old server is inaccessible, but if you want, just see the following blog post: http://www.running-system.com/disassociate-esxi-host-vcenter-vcenter-not-available/

Just, connect to new vCenter Server 5.5, and then select Add Host, and follow the wizard.
