SQL Server 2012 AlwaysOn Joining error 35250

If you receive the below error while using the Availability Group Wizard you could try these steps to resolve it

First view the properties of the failed Replica


Make a note of the Endpoint port being used (In this case it was the default 5022)


Create a new Inbound Port Rule for the port on the Primary & Secondary servers


On the Secondary server (the one with the issue), right click on the database and select ‘Join to Availability Group’


Select ‘OK’


The database should now be joined



I’m trying to test always on using two windows server 2008 r2 hyper-v virtual machines for both primary and secondary replicas.

I’m having trouble with joining error 35250. I’ve followed the steps shown in this post, but i doesn’t work.

I’ve turned off the firewall, but it stills shows error 35250.

Any idea ?
