Hi, as an accident we had a contractor literally delete our witness vm (witness to the mirror databases including xds). and now as a result xds says (Principal disconnected / in recovery.
we also now have lost the ability to use topology viewer,
are we best to build a new witness of the same name?
and no we do not have a backup to restore too, as they did not do that job correctly either.
safe to say they do not work for our business anymore.
please let me know if you need any more details!
