Error modifying a Template created prior to ESX upgrade from 4 to 4.1

I have had no issues with modifying templates within our VMWare environment until our upgrade to ESX 4.1. Since then all our templates errored with:

CallPropertyCollector.RetrieveContents” for object “propertyCollector” on vCenter Server “VCentreServer” failed.

A simple step to correct the issue would be to delete the template from Inventory and re-add it again. This should clear this message and give you back the control of your template.
