Hi All

Wonder if somebody can shed some light on this?
Basically we are looking into running some sort of DR for our site, and we are toying with the idea of running a mirror on another site but it will not be in full time use will just sync to our main site.

Now do we need to purchase user cal's for this "backup" site as well? or are the licences on our existing  site ok to use on the backup site? Will they transfer in the event of a Disaster?
Or do we need to buy duplicates?

Any links to MS documentation on this would help
