Moving from Standard vSwitch to Distribution vSwitch

I would like to know which Port types can be moved from Standard vSwitch to Distribution vSwitch without disruption

Assuming we already have in several ESX Hosts and several Standard vSwitches the following ports:,

Management, vMotion, Storage  vmKernel ports
VM Port Groups


Thank you
