Hi All.
SQL Server 2012 - Windows 2008 R2.

Can you backup a mirroring database (Not the primary database but the one in mirroring partner) when it is in "suspend mirroring" state or "Disconnected" state or any other state ?. The idea is to backup the database on mirroring partner before DR (Disaster Recovery) test (before putting the database online) then have the test be done than restore the database from the previous backup to continue with the mirroring without copying the primary database Full-Differential-TRN log backups again from primary and establishing the mirroring again. Thanks for any input.
