I noticed there is a bug that when people asked about it, they were sent in the wrong direction. When trying to use SQL server 2016 with SSMS 17.1 to create a mirrored database, the following errors might be received:
Database is not configured for database mirroring. Database x cannot be opened. It is in the middle of a restore.
This error was a real PITA that cost me 2 weeks of searching as I am new to this DBA stuff, otherwise I would have gone the scripting path.
What is the solution?
