The license information indicates that it supports active/active configuration. So if you wish to configure it in active/standby then that should certainly be supported by the license.

I note that 3DES-AES is disabled. This will not prevent your active/standby configuration, but I would suggest that you might want to get the 3DES-AES activated on the license.
