SQL Mirroring Issue

We have 3 separate databases which are mirrored to a second node and there is a witness server which watches the process. These 3 databases need to access each other as part of the application that uses them. Sometimes the Mirroring Witness automatically fails over one of the databases causing errors in our application.

Is it possible to group these 3 databases together so that when a failover occurs, all will be moved to the second node?

Thanks,
James

Hi Phillip,

I implemented this yesterday and it appears to failover the Databases to node 2, but it doesn't work in the reverse direction.

Do I need to create the same Alert and job on node 2 also? I didn't want to get in a looping situation.

Thanks,
James

Yes, but disable it on node 2 until and unless it fails over.
