We had a hardware failure last night and we got our servers up and running. After logging into SSMS I find all the mirrored databases in a disconnected state. I've done some searching with google-fu, but I've not found what I need.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?


I broke the mirror and attempted to reconfigure it through the wizard. Once I "Finish" it looked like it was going to work, then it failed with the following error:

The server network address "TCP://SeanServer00.DBA.com:5022" can not be reached or does not exist. Check the network address name and that the ports for the local and remote endpoints are operational. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 1418)

Actually, everything stayed the same, I found out that the service account some how lost the CONNECT permission.

So, I gave the service accounts the CONNECT permission and all the mirrored database synced as expected!
