Bringing the secondary database online

I had a database mirroring configured for a long time, the secondary server is in hot standby(restoring) mode, I decided to stop the mirroring and bring the secondary server online today, What I did is:
1. From primary server, remove mirroring, then do a transaction log backup
2. Copy the tlog to secondary server, restore the tlog with recovery option So far, the database is OK, I just wondering if I missed something? ——————

After restoring the TLog file with recovery option from primary node, the secondly node is OK, I also checked the contents of both nodes, they are identical. ——————

Should be ok then, as an additional check you might refer to SQL Server error log. Satya SKJ
