Using VMware replication with localized SSO domains


We have 2 data centres each which are going to have a version of vCenter 6.0 one being Essentials Plus and one being Enterprise Plus, due to business limitations.

I was thinking of setting up a single SSO domain for the 2, but the Essentials version doesn't support  "Enhanced Linked Mode"

If I create a Local SSO instance at each site and then setup replication between the 2,

what difficulties will I have restoring the VM in a DR situation, what work will need to be done to get the VM up and running?

If we were to go ahead with  Enhanced Linked Mode and get the appropriate vSphere licences Standard or better would they have to be the same version eg 6.0+6.0 or Enterprise+Enterprise etc?

cheers Mike
