Default why can't use SQL named instance for DB mirroring

Please Login to Remove!

has anyone tried to use named instance? I have read some KB articles and they all stated not to use named instanced. I spoke with a support engineer. He said that MS SQL doesn't support database mirroring with named instance. But I checked MS KB and it says it can do DB mirroring with named instance. I need to put BES config DB to a shared SQL server. The DBA won't let us to use default instance.

Please advice.

Thanks in advance

Default Re: why can't use SQL named instance for DB mirroring

When database mirroring is configured in a high availability environment using a named instance and a port number other than 1433, the BlackBerry Administration Service and remote components do not failover properly.There is a bug with the JDBC driver that is currently bundled with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server installer. I think that's why support engineer said to SQL doesn't support database mirroring with named instance
