Error message during database mirroring on SQL Server 2005

I am trying to begin database mirroring in SQL Server 2005. I have Service Pack 2 installed, and I have three instances running. When I attempt to start mirroring, I receive the error message, “One or more of the server network addresses lacks a fully qualified domain name.” My network addresses are: TCP://Joe:5024 principal TCP://Joe:5025 mirror TCP://Joe:1433 witness If I attempt to run ALTER DATABASE newdotlearn SET Partner = 'TCP://DOTMIRROR1.joe.com:5024' from the mirror, it works. When I run ALTER DATABASE newdotlearn SET Partner = 'TCP://DOTMIRROR2.joe.com:5025' from the principal, I get the error. Do you know why?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

All three instances are hosted on the same machine, so the ALTER DATABASE command for each database should be the same, with only the port number being changed.
