http://kb.vmware.com/kb/2032895 - This video discusses and demonstrates registering a vCenter Server 5.0.x system with the vSphere 5.1 Web Client.

To enable connectivity to a vCenter Server 5.0 system with the vSphere Web Client 5.1, you need to register it with the vSphere Web Client using the vSphere Web Client Administration Tool.

The vSphere Web Client is a Web application that can reside either on the same system as vCenter Server or a separate system. Before you can connect to a vCenter Server 5.0 system with the vSphere Web Client, you must register the vCenter Server 5.0 system with the vSphere Web Client. Unregister a vCenter Server system when you no longer want users to be able to access it using a particular instance of the vSphere Web Client.

You need not register vCenter Server 5.1 systems that use the same vCenter Single Sign On server as the vSphere Web Client. The vSphere Web Client can locate such vCenter Server systems by using VMware Lookup Service.

vSphere Web Client does not support vCenter Sever systems prior to 5.0.

You can register multiple vCenter Server systems with a single vSphere Web Client.
Register a given vCenter Server system with only one vSphere Web Client instance, rather than using multiple vSphere Web Client instances to manage that vCenter Server system.
