BH Hi, I'm currently using mirror system with 2 servers and 1 arbiter. Is it possible to have mirroring with 3 servers and 1 arbiter? If yes, what would the syntax be? I'm currently using the syntax below. -xp partner=(ENG=mtrs16b;LINKS=tcpip(PORT=2639;TIMEOUT=1));auth=abc;arbiter=(ENG=arbiter;LINKS=tcpip(PORT=2640;TIMEOUT=1));mode=sync
Also, does it slow down the primary server when there are more than 2 partners? Thanks Aron

You can only have two partners which partake in the mirroring of the database and handle the failover (to each other), but you can add "copy nodes" to the mirroring system to handle additional read only load on the database system. See the documentation for more information.
