So in a failover situation, in order to failover to the replicas, will the SCVMM server and the SQL server it uses for the SCVMM database need to be manually powered on in order for Veeam to failover the remaining VMs?
Or will the Veeam server communicate directly with the Hyper-V hosts to power on the VMs and flag that the VM is in failover mode within Veeam?
What happens if I try to failover to a replica that is already powered on? Will it be flagged being in failover mode or will the failover fail with an error?
Unfortunately I do not have a lab environment to test this on.

First: Welcome to the forums
Second: When you loose SCVMM in the case of a disaster, and you just want to start your replica's, it won't be a problem. SCVMM is used to track movement of VMs, do inventory and so on, but in the end, when you need to do a restore, we will talk straight to the host.
