Nexus 1000 - vCenter 5.5 Upgrade to 6.0 - Official Steps?

I have tried to find the appropriate steps to upgrade from vCenter 5.5 to 6.0 but so far haven't found a good guide.

 

We are already running N1KV 5.2(1)SV3(1.5b) due to security bugs, but now we need to plan for the upgrade to vCenter 6.0

 

Here is my plan:

1.  Upgrade vCenter and VUM -  Is there a step needed to reconnect N1K SVS to vCenter after the upgrade?

2. Uninstall VEM from ESXI 5.5

3. Upgrade ESXi to 6.0

4.  Install VEM

 

Does this look correct?  Or is there a document that speaks to this? 

I have looked at the Upgrade utility at http://www.cisco.com/c/dam/en/us/td/docs/Website/datacenter/nexus1000/upgrade/n1kvmatrix.html

However it assumes you are doing a N1K upgrade at the same time as the vCenter upgrade.

We are only doing the vCenter upgrade.
