In This Topic
The RC4 algorithm is deprecated. This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Do not use this feature in new development work, and modify applications that currently use this feature as soon as possible. We recommend that you use AES.
To create a database mirroring endpoint
Change directory (cd) to the server instance for which you want to create the database mirroring endpoint.
Use the New-SqlHadrEndpoint cmdlet to create the endpoint and then use the Set-SqlHadrEndpoint to start the endpoint.
The following PowerShell commands create a database mirroring endpoint on an instance of SQL Server (Machine\Instance). The endpoint uses port 5022.
This example works only on a server instance that currently lack a database mirroring endpoint.
# Create the endpoint. $endpoint = New-SqlHadrEndpoint MyMirroringEndpoint -Port 5022 -Path SQLSERVER:\SQL\Machine\Instance # Start the endpoint Set-SqlHadrEndpoint -InputObject $endpoint -State "Started"
