I am trying to evaluate a disaster recovery setup (DR).

Is there a way that this scenario can work?
--Install the ArcGIS server 10.1 on machine A1.
--Install the ArcGIS server 10.1 on machine B1.
--License is one so, first machine A1 will be authorized and people will use the ArcGIS server 10.1 on A1.
--If something bad happens and A1 goes down and I want to start the new machine as serving machine. Authorize (somehow, this i want to understand??) the B1.
--People will use the B1 now as A1 is down.
--Do we have concurrent licensing scheme for ArcGIS server 10.1?
--Is this scenario going to work with ONE license?
--i believe the de-authorize is also there for ArcGIS server? if so how much turn around time is for de-authorization and 2nd machine starts working?
--Any other idea?

Any insight, help is very much appreciated.
