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

That is the way it is supposed to be. The database on the mirror server can not be accessed as data is being fed into it in real time. If you need to access the database, you can try creating a snapshot of the database. This will be a static read only copy of the mirror database, but it should work for your needs.
