vSphere 4.1 upgrade gotchas
If you find yourself in this scenario, and you know what you named your previous vDS's, PortGroups, etc.. you may be able to recreate it without much difficulty. It gets more difficult when your using 8+ nic's per ESX Host. If you just need to start from scratch, it'll take a reboot or two of your ESX hosts (especially if you use EVC CPU masking) to get everything ripped out so you can start over again.

How to upgrade Cisco 9124 NX-OS
This is pretty simple, but for some reason hard to google4.
1) download the latest Kickstart and System image from cisco.com
2) tftp, or whatever method you like get the image onto the Cisco
3) Run this on cisco console in “config” mode
a) boot kickstart bootflash:/m9100-s2ek9-kickstart-mz.5.0.1a.bin
b) boot system bootflash:/m9100-s2ek9-mz.5.0.1a.bin
4) Save your Config, Reboot the Switch..and your done.
You probably don’t want to skip versions, i.e. 3-5 directly.
You can probabaly only hold 2 versions at a time, so if your on 3, upload 4, upgrade to 4, delete 3, then upload 5, update to 5, rinse, wash, repeat.
