Bug #: 50000886 (SQL Hotfix)
Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2005 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2005 fix release.

SUMMARY

This article describes the following about this hotfix release:
  • The issues that are fixed by the hotfix package
  • The prerequisites for installing the hotfix package
  • Information about whether you must restart the computer after you install the hotfix package
  • Information about whether the hotfix package is replaced by any other hotfix package
  • Information about whether you must make any registry changes
  • The files that are contained in the hotfix package

SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You configure database mirroring for a database in SQL Server 2005.
  • In an application, you use SQL Native Client to connect to the instance of the principal server in the database mirroring session.
  • In the application, you set the Failover_Partner option in the connection string to the mirror server.
  • A failover occurs in the database mirroring session.
  • You run the following statement to restore the database to the principal server:
    ALTER DATABASE <Database_Name> SET PARTNER OFF
In this scenario, when you run the application to connect to the instance of the principal server, you receive the following error message:
[Microsoft][SQL Native Client]The connection attempted to fail over to a server that does not have a failover partner.
Note This application can successfully connect to the instance of the principal server before the failover occurs.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because the synchronization between the principal server and the mirror server is broken.
