Just wondering, after configuring a High Protection database mirror between a principal and mirrored server, is it possible to perform full backups of the database on the Principal server or will that interfere with the mirroring process ie. the transaction log backup numbers will be out of synch.
I raise this question in case of the scenario that both the principal and mirrored servers were to suffer a hardware issue that required a rebuild of both. How do you restore the backup of your database on a new server if you couldn't use a backup file of the database.
So if you wanted to perform a weekly full backup of the database, would you need to pause mirroring on the principal, backup the database/log and restore to the mirror server before resuming mirroring between the two servers to make sure both the database and mirror are completely in synch?
