I have a PrimaryServer, MirrorServer and a WitnessServer. My backups are failing with the Error Msg 954 cannot be opened. It is act
ing as a mirror database. The backup jobs run on the PrimaryServer but when I look at the sys.database_mirroring it shows that the roles has been swith beteen the PrimaryServer & MirrorServer (which is now acting as the primary). This started when the .ldf was being move to another.

Since the .ldf has been move successfully now when I restart the Primary I guess it will see the .ldf(at it's new location) and be able to backup the log file without failing and go back to being the Primary. Correct?

I'm not following your post. What did you do with the ldf? Did mirroring resume after the maintenance? What software are you using for your backups?
