Add Database File on Database invloved in DB Mirroring

Database Mirroring works on transaction logs. It applies transaction logs from Principle to Mirror. But Operation like addition of file is no log operation because of that file not be added to Mirror automatically.

Steps to Add Database File on Database involved in DB Mirroring :-

1) Break the Mirroring

ALTER DATABASE USERDB1 SET PARTNER OFF

2) Add New Data or log file, whatever is required

USE [master]

GO

ALTER DATABASE [UserDB1] ADD FILE

( NAME = N’UserDB1_1′,

FILENAME = N’H:MSSQL12.INS1MSSQLDATAUserDB1_1.ndf’ ,

SIZE = 3072KB , FILEGROWTH = 1024KB )

TO FILEGROUP [PRIMARY]

3) Take Transaction Log backup at Primary

BACKUP LOG USERDB1 TO DISK = ‘C:USERDB1_LOG.TRN’

4) Restore Step 3 Transactional Backup on Mirror with Move option

RESTORE LOG [USERDB1] FROM

DISK = N’C:USERDB1_LOG.TRN’

WITH Move N’UserDB1_1′ TO

N’I:MSSQL12.SQL14I2MSSQLDATAUserDB1.ndf’,

NORECOVERY, NOUNLOAD, STATS = 10

5) Reestablished DB Mirroring again

First on Mirror

ALTER DATABASE USERDB1

SET PARTNER = ‘TCP://SQL2014.RohitGarg.local.in:5022’

Second on Principle

ALTER DATABASE USERDB1

SET PARTNER = ‘TCP://SQL2K14_2.RohitGarg.local.in:5022’

 

NOTE : In case your Database Mirroring has same file structure at both principal & mirror then no special steps needed. Once you add file at principal, file automatically added to mirror database. Above steps are valid only for different  file structure at both principal & mirror.

Thanks to my friend Sachin for pointing this to me.
