Hi, i just want to check the usage rights for Windows Server licensing and failover / disaster recovery.

I have 3x 16 core data centre licenses with SA that we use on a HCI cluster.

I want to know if i can have any "standby" machines for failover in case this cluster fails.

Ideally what i would have is a server with hyper-v replicas syncing to it that i can turn on if anything happens to my cluster and all i need to do is change DFS and DNS to redirect users to these.

Is this a supported scenario as long as nothing accesses the DR server unless it is needed (including backup servers etc)
