I am trying to find information on the best way to shrink a transaction log while the database is being mirrored. Typically I set the recovery to simple and then run dbcc shrinkfile to bring the tlog down. With mirroring this is not possible as the mirror must be in Full recovery mode. My question then is two fold.
1.) Can a transaction log be shrunk while mirroring? Since the db is in full recovery mode and I run dbcc shrinkfile I usually get an error message unless I set recovery to simple.
2.) If I do set recovery to simple while mirroring what happens to the mirror and if it breaks is there a quick method for reestablishing the mirror?
