Taking into account that VMWare is not supported with CUCM until 8.0.2, and even then only with select Cisco UCS platforms, any installation of VMWare for lab purposes is best effort, which includes upgrades and is not a guaranteed or supported upgrade as you are probably well aware.

I would recommending doing a fresh install of CM on VMWare for 7.1.3.  A VM install of 7.1.3 will give you additional eval licenses beyond what was offered with CUCM 5.1, not to mention that you will need a new SW feature license for 7.x which you won't be able to get for VMWare.  If you do upgrade from 5.1 to 7.x besides the licensing issues you will also likely run into the disk space partitioning size issue that effects all systems when performing this type of upgrade as discussed in the link below:

Best to do a new install.

I've been looking to VM up an environment here in the near future, thanks for the info.
