Missing Feature in SP2 "Database Mirror Monitor" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I've been running SQL 2005 Enterprise SP1 for some time. After installing SP2, I miss the "Database Mirror Monitor"-Feature. Where is it? Did MS kill the feature?

  • I'm running SP2 and for me it's located in SQL Server Management Studio


    - Right-click the database in Object Explorer

    - click 'Tasks'

    - click 'Launch database mirroring monitor'

  • Maybe try installing the English version of the client tools? Maybe it was overlooked in your localized version? I dunno...

  • Database mirror monitor is only available on the standard and enterprise editions of sql server 2005 only.  If you are connected to any other version of sql, this tool is not available.

  • Fyi, appearance of the monitor depends on whether a database is selected. When you open the monitor, the detail pane displays a Register mirrored database link. Click this to register a database. Registered databases are listed below the Database Mirroring Monitor node in the navigation tree. Database Mirroring Monitor always tries to connect to every server instance for which it has stored credentials.
