Hi,

It seems the answer is no to this but I would like to confirm this.

I have three SQL 2005 servers and I would like to setup data base mirroring. Can I get one server and then create mirrors for all three SQL servers on a single server?

Thanks.

The way i'm reading it the scenario you have described is possible. You will have 3 principal instances with a principal database on each that use the 4th server as a mirror instance is that correct?

What you can't do is have 1 principal mirroring a database out to 3 mirror instances, this is only possible with AlwaysOn groups in SQL Server 2012.

Thanks for your answer. Yes, you understood correctly. I actually spent few hours to create this in my lab and yes, I managed to create the mirrors for three different database (from multiple servers) to one server.

Thanks again.
