    Hi. I'd like to ask if replication works between two sites wherein one is setup completely with all VMs on distributed vSwitches and the other has only standard vSwitches. Each site has its own vCenter.

    When you use VR by itself you have to select the network that you are recovering a VM to when you recover it. There is no issue moving a VM between network types. 

    If you use SRM with VR you can map networks as part of protecting the VM so that they can be recovered without having to assign networking. With SRM as well there is no issue mapping between different network types (standard switch, vDS, NSX-T, etc).
