  • This is not supported and dangerous. Early versions of SQL Server allowed this (unsupported) setup. Not sure if it is still the case with 2016 but I would strongly suggest against it. I would also suggest not to use mirroring with new SQL Server versions because it is deprecated feature. You would not get any fixes if something goes wrong.

    In your case, the best option would be upgrade your DR server to Enterprise and use Availability Groups.

    Thank you!
