1. almost none
2. later works only with web client only
3. best is to not migrate. dvswitch adds blatantly long network cuts to vmotions
4. You need two management channels (IPs)
5. It is adapter-at-atime, or faster - maintenance mode + host profile at a time

You add host to dvs, and migrate one physical connection
Then move one managment virtual adapter to that connection
Then do the rest (you can make checkpoint after every 3 networks, but also trying and checking if result works is fine.
