Cannot Manage Datastores after vSphere Upgrade

After upgrading Virtual Center server from 2.5 to 4, I could no longer manage Datastores.  I checked my permissions on the Datastore and it was set to “datastore upgrade”.  There was no way I wanted to keep logging out of vCenter every time I needed to move servers around.  So I logged onto vCenter using local admin credentials of the Virtual Infrastructure Server.  From there I went to Inventory -> Datastores and set the appropriate permissions to the “datastore-upgrade” folder.

Here is a link to the KB article from VMware.
