Does someone know for certain what the rules on licensing SQL Server machines is with respect to mirrored databases? We are looking a DR scenario where we would be mirroring the databases using Enterprise Edition from one datacenter to another.

My question is: Do we need to purchase licenses for both the Principle node and the mirrored node, or do we need to purchase licenses for only the principle node and we shift that license to the mirrored node when it is in use and the principle node is down.

If someone can please look into this and let me know what the rules are I would appreciate it.
