I had mirroring working on 2 SQL servers, both on the same domain, running a domain account for their services. One of my colleagues had to break the mirror to clear up the transaction log for some reason, now we cannot enable mirroring again.
I have researched everywhere and tried setting up from scratch, I get the mirrored database enabled to see the principle, but when I run the script below on the principle:
ALTER DATABASE [Database]
SET PARTNER =
'TCP://FQDN of Mirror:5022';
Msg 1418, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
The server network address "TCP://FQDN:5022" 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 have no witness setup, and can telnet from each server to the other on 5022 successfully. this was working, so I am not sure. Principle server is on Full Recovery model, I did backup and restore to Mirror server WITH NORECOVERY option.
