I am configuring mirroring on two sql 2008 servers. I have a principle server and a standby server with a restored database (in NORECOVERY mode).

When I choose to mirror, and then choose the primary and mirror server...I get the following error. Now, i can connect to both servers, ping each other and with DNS, can telnet to each respective port on 5022 so its not a connectivity issue.

TITLE: Database Properties

An error occurred while starting mirroring.

The server network address "TCP://" can not be reached or does not exist. Check the network address name and that the ports for the local and remote endpoints are operational. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 1418)
