- The hosts are added to vCenter by IP address, and I'd like to change them to FQDNs, is there anything I need to do different from a standard VMware cluster?
- Where do I get updated firmwares from - it's reporting an old SATADOM firmware? Just phone Dell?
- The "Upgrade Software" interface says 'You haven't authenticated any vCenters' I presume I can just create an account in vsphere.local and authenticate it, any reason to not do this?Thanks in advance

There are no issues adding hosts in vCenter as IP address or FQDN, make sure your nameservers are properly configured if u have FQDN, u can remove one host at a time and re-add them using FQDN.
There is some specific configuration required if you delete and re-create cluster, which u can get from documentation on support portal.
About firmware, u need to get Dell support onboard for that.
The "Upgrade Software" integration is for some workflow added in version 5.x like increase CVM memory, etc.
For that, u can use any vCenter admin level user for authentication.
