SQL 2008R2 Mirroring Issue


We have noticed errors cropping up in the logs. We have 3 servers, DB01, DB02 and DB03 (as the witness server).

Jumping on the witness server we have noticed odd entries in the logs and wanted some advice on this.

Database mirroring connection error 4 'An error occurred while receiving data: '24(The program issued a command but the command length is incorrect.)'.' for 'TCP://DB02:4040'.
Error: 1474, Severity: 16, State: 1.

Any help will be appreciated.

What is the version of Witness ? Well all participating sql version should be same in database mirroring.
this is most likely a version issue. is the witness SQL version  newer than the versions used on the mirror?

witness is web edition and the other two DB's are standard editions
I'm sorry to say that is very likely your issue. The witness can be SQL express without an issue as long as it's the same SQL version.
