Hi,

We have two sql server (Principal () & Mirror) in our domain. We tried to setup the database mirroring using certificates. We follow the MSDn article for that. Every thing is working fine till i am not set partner on Principal server. I am running following query on principal server and get the error:
USE master
GO
ALTER DATABASE DB_Name SET PARTNER = 'TCP://Mirror Server IP:7024';
GO
Error:
"Msg 1418, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
The server network address "TCP://192.168.20.63:7024" 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.
"

I drop certificate and end point on both server so many time, but still i am getting the same error at above point.

Server Details:
Principal server:
Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition, Sql server developer SP2

Mirror Server:
Windows XP SP2, Sql server developer SP2

Please help me to find out the solution.
