Dear,
When the principal database is in "synchronizing" state and then I take a log backup. What would actually happen?

Do I need to restore that log backup to the mirror database or not? Please let me know.


Thanks
Akbar

Same things that happens any other time you take a log backup, nothing special.

I wouldn't try restoring the log unless you're doing the initial setup of the mirroring

@Gila Monster,
Thanks for your help. I have already configured database mirroring. So, its not a new setup.

Actually I took a log backup of principal database when it was on the "Synchronizing" state. So I was afraid of whether it makes any difference with respect to "Synchronizing" and "Synchronized" state.
