I am testing the Nexus 1000v.  I had it installed on one VMware server and had the VSM connected to the vcenter.  We decided to move it to another VMware server.  We tried deleting the old VSM and distribution switch out of the vcenter, but when I try and connect the new VSM I get the following message. 

switch(config-svs-conn)# connect

ERROR: [VMWARE-VIM] Extension key was not registered before its use.

We tried to change the extension-key on the new vsm to what is showing for the old VSM so we could link them up and delete the old one.  This does not seem to be working.  I would like to know how to remove the old VSM out of the vcenter so I can get the new one to connect and continue with my testing.
