Recently I had worked on a mirroring issue. While initializing mirroring, an error message as shown in the below screenshot is encountered.
Here’s how this issue was fixed
- Check if the recovery model of the database on the Prinicipal Server was set to FULL. <– Yes, it was.
- Take the full database backup of the database on the Prinicpal server
- Take the transaction log backup of the database on the Principal Server
- Restore the full database backup on the mirrored instance WITH NORECOVERY
- Restore the transaction log backup on the mirrored instance WITH NORECOVERY
Configure Mirroring again.
