Database Mirroring issue

Hello,

When trying to do a database mirror, I get the attached error after I go through the wizard.  Note that during the wizard everything connects just fine between servers and I get the green checkmarks at the end of the wizard.  When I click start mirroring, the attached error comes up.

Any ideas?  Here is the sql statement I used to create the endpoints:


USE [master]

GO

CREATE ENDPOINT [Mirroring]

        AUTHORIZATION [domain\administrator]

        STATE=STARTED

        AS TCP (LISTENER_PORT = 5022, LISTENER_IP = ALL)

        FOR DATA_MIRRORING (ROLE = PARTNER, AUTHENTICATION = WINDOWS NEGOTIATE

, ENCRYPTION = REQUIRED ALGORITHM AES RC4)

GO


Thanks,DB Mirror Issue

The mirror port 5022 is different from the basic connection port; I suggest checking the firewall rules both on the server and at the network switches as a first step.  The network switch port rules are a likely culprit.  You might have to ask for help from your network admin.

Hello,

I use port 1533 and have set everything correctly.  I can telnet to each server with port 5022, and 1533.  I cannot telnet to port 1434 however, even though I have put a firewall rule in place on the windows firewall.  Also, when I open up sql and do browse for more server and click on network servers, I do not see the mirror server from the principal and vice versa.  Could this be the problem?

Well, it's really hard to diagnose without being there but it does suspiciously sound like a case of a blocking rule somewhere. Have you checked the settings in the connection manager (under sql server > configuration tools from the start menu)?  Is your company big enough to have a dedicated networking admin and did you check with that person?  Network switch filewall and or port forwarding rules will frequently stop this kind of thing too.

Hello,

Yes, I forgot to mention that I did check with them and they said they are not blocking anything.  Could this be due to the size of the database?

What settings do I need to look at in connection manager?

Here's the mirror setup troubleshooting checklist on technet. Do the 6 items in the 'endpoints' section: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms189127.aspx#Endpoints
