License question for DR exercise from Cloud to On-prem RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like to know if Microsoft licensing generally allows us to restore a backup of our VMs from a private cloud provider to our on-premise environment for a one-time DR scenario exercise.
    Currently our private cloud vendor wont allow us to restore the full VM backup from their cloud to our datacenter. Their reason is that we will violate Microsoft licensing if we do that. Is that true? 
    Our on premise servers are fully licensed.
