Distributed vSwitches on ESX4.0

We have been running Distributed vSwitches for almost 7 months and enjoy that they are much better in configuration and a lot easier to configure new hosts with.

Recommendations:
I put the vMotion portgroup and the Service Console on the distributed vSwitches, and it produces some phenomenal redundancy and helps with performance.  I very much recommend putting the vMotion  portgroup on these vSwitches, but not the Service Console.  The sheer issues when the host cannot see the shared storage and therefore the Service Console is unavailable to connect to and an HA outage turns into an extended outage. 

Recap:
use vMotion in distributed vSwitch
use a redundant standard vSwitch for the Service Console.
