MS SQL 2008 Mirroring and MS Access Frontend

Hi Expert!

I have MS SQL Server 2008 Developer Edition.
The Mirroring is configured and works fine for .Net Applications.
See for example http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/5h52hef8.aspx for using Mirroring in ADO.NET

But we have also MS Access Frontend Applications. How to use the mirroring in this case? Where the second copy of the database must be configured?

Is Access using a DSN to refer to SQL Server?
If it is an ODBC DSN, you can add the directive

Failover Partner=PartnerServerName

into the DSN, e.g.

[ODBC]
DRIVER=SQL Server
DATABASE=dbname
Trusted_Connection=Yes
SERVER=servername
Failover Partner=PartnerServerName

Hi cyberkiwi!
Thanks for the replay.

I set the connection in the Data Link Properties Dialog

You can go to the All tab and edit the ExtendedProperties value to add

FailoverPartner=PartnerServerName
