I am trying to help someone plan for a disaster.
They have a copy if W2K8R2 Enterprise running as a physical server.
They use backup software that can gen up VHDs as part of a recovery.
I was going to recommend they get another server that they can drop those on and use Hyper-V in the event of an issue with their main server.
My question is, can that backup server have 2K12 R2 Standard on it and host an Enterprise licensed VM on it? Is that technically and legally feasible? I understand the resource limitations but they are OK with limping along if they have to.
