Hi, I was trying to do a database mirroring( for learning purposes). But the mirroring process failed. I am currently having sql server 2005 developer edition, installed in physically two different machines. It gives me an error that there is some error : with the network address I have specified. Note: I have created these settings through SSMS. The network address is as TCP://<machine>:5022 for both the mirror and principal. Also, if possible can some one please help me restore the mirrored database in the previous state: I mean: I had to restore it with the current back up with recovery on. It is still in Restoring state I hope You get my point. Please reply as soon as possible.
