  • To configure database mirroring
    1. After connecting to the principal server instance, in Object Explorer, click the server name to expand the server tree.

    2. Expand Databases, and select the database to be mirrored.

    3. Right-click the database, select Tasks, and then click Mirror. This opens the Mirroring page of the Database Properties dialog box.

    4. To begin configuring mirroring, click the Configure Security button to launch the Configure Database Mirroring Security Wizard.


    but i do not see any "Mirror" Option in the "Tasks" menu.

    Why ?

  • Which edition and release (RTM or SP1) of SQL Server are you using? I don't know why you don't see the Mirror option in the Task menu.

    Here's another way to get it. Right-click on the database, and select Properties. ON the Properties page, select "Mirroring".
