I upgraded from the Vmware ESxi 4.1 to 5.0. The snapshot of a virtual machine was taken while it was in ESxi 4.1.I just wanted to know whether this snapshot can be used with ESxi 5.0

According to everything that I've seen and heard, you should be able to revert to the snapshot, with some caveats. If, for example, you upgraded virtual hardware from v3 to v7, you can't revert to a snapshot. v4 to v7 IS, however, supported and you can revert if necessary.

I know that mixing an ESX(i) upgrade with a virtual hardware upgrade question makes things a bit confusing but it's the most complete way I can answer the question.
