vCenter Server Services Hang On Startup After Upgrading to vCenter Server 5.1

After upgrading to vCenter Server 5.1, the VMware VirtualCenter Server service displays as Starting and fails to complete the start of the service. The issue is caused by a key length mismatch between the vCenter Server certificate and the encrypted host passwords stored in the vCenter Server database. You need to run some SQL command to solve this issue. Refer to this VMware KB for more information.
