We're moving an entire Nutanix cluster of ESXi hosts (6.0U2) currently managed by a single vCenter onto a new vCenter. We'd like to test functionality for end-users by migrating 3 of the ESXi hosts to the new vCenter first, then moving the remaining hosts once testing is completed. Will running the Nutanix cluster split between two vCenters work for purposes of our functionality testing? All CVM traffic will be on standard switches during the host moves.

Until recently, Nutanix had no interaction with vCenter so it wouldn't matter. If you are at the 5.x levels and have done the vCenter registration, you might loose some functionality on those nodes but it should work.
