We are using vcenter server at our remote site for managing VMs over the LAN there and WAN. Maybe not the best for performance or if VPN/Wan fails. However, i'm going to replicate locally over LAN from host 1 to host2. In the event the vcentre server fails, can/should i point the source and destinations of the replica jobs at the esxi hosts instead of the vcentre box?
Any reason to use the vcentre server?
