After upgrading to vCenter Server 5, “com.vmware.converter” alert

After upgrading to vCenter 5, the vCenter Service Status page displays the following error:

com.vmware.converter alert unable to retrieve health data from https:///converter/health.xml

This error occurs because the integrated vCenter Converter plug-in is no longer available in vSphere 5!  To solve this error  following the VMware KB article listed below:

Error after upgrading to vCenter Server 5.0: com.vmware.converter alert unable to retrieve health data – KB: 2006132

After following the KB article, the  converter plug-in is removed from the vCenter Service Status page.
