When you're like me, you just go ahead and install stuff without taking the time to read if the software you're installing can be upgraded later. Dive head first. 😉

Often with beta software, an upgrade path to a release build is lacking or problematic. Same goes for vCloud Director 1.5 beta to the release build of 1.5. When I upgraded to the release build, I did so without 'Unpreparing' the ESXi hosts that were being used by vCloud Director. That causes some problems when you want to link a new vCloud Director to these ESXi hosts, as the vCloud Agent is still on the hosts. You have to remove that agent manually before you can link them with the new vCloud Director again. Here's how:

ESXi 5.0

esxcli software vib remove -n vcloud-agent

ESXi/ESX 4.x
