Hi there.

I need help! My issue is that: here have to datamirror servers, and when the first fail, mirror needs to assume with the same name.

I'll try explain: SD01 - Primary, SD02 - mirror. If SD01 fails, SD02 assumes called SD01. By the way, the instances are in same domain, but not in same computer.

Any feedback is grateful.

Be brave.

You can use a DNS alias that the connection strings would use, but I would advise using Availability Groups instead where you would use an AG Listener.

You could also consider changing the connection string to define a "Failover Partner". This defines a second server to use if the primry becomes unavailable. This link would have specifics depending on how you connect to your server: http://www.connectionstrings.com/

Are you saying I can configure the "same" connection on two instances? I'm already using failover datamirror.
