Running a db mirroring in sql server 2005 sp2.
There is SAN maintenance that needs to occur and i want to know if I stop SQL Server on the fail-over partner (mirror) and the principal keeps doing log backups, will i need to re-initialize database mirroring (with a full backup) if the mirror is offline for several days?
I have a feeling there is some internal limit I've come across before. I haven't been able to find anything online that references this, and i don't have the time to test this because the SAN people (not be be confused with the sand people) want to do this now!
I am not breaking the mirror and bringing the partner online, so there is no break in the transaction log chain.
