Hi Perry,

No confusion.....Failover is performed at the principal server isn't it?

No, not when the principal is dead as you quoted in your scenario above. In this case you would use the following from the mirror to bring the mirror database online

ALTER DATABASE [somehadb] SET PARTNER FORCE_SERVICE_ALLOW_DATA_LOSS

If the principal is down then how would failover take place?

That was my question in a nutshell.

see above

Yes you would use that and I know that now, but when I asked this question I didn't know about Forced Service.

That's why I asked about failover from principal as I didn't know you could do forced service on the mirror.
