Please check that the settings are correct, especially in the ALTER DATABASE command.

The one you supplied has a typo, so if you copied that from SSMS you may have the solution already:

it has to be TCP://<system address>:<port> You have one slash missing and the word mirrored is written wrong (this may not be a problem if the partner is spelled that way though).

Please also make sure that the system address exists. Normally you would use a fully qualified domain name or IP address to make sure you are connecting to the right partner.

Take a look at [Setting Up Database Mirroring][1] and make sure you have all pre-requisites setup, then double check spellings etc. It will probably be something really obvious that you just aren't seeing.

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
