2) Can i have any installation documentation for adding the device with sql server?
3) how to check device is added and working fine with sql server?
4) Also,can i have a query how to check principal server is UP and running fine with DB Mirroring.

Here's the download link for the SQL 2012 Evaluation:


I'm not sure what device you intend to "add" or how you intend to connect it, but each client is different - you'd have to read the documentation for the client you're using. If it's just SQL Management Studio, then it's easy to connect and there are a number of tutorials you can find online (like this one: http://learningsqlserver.wordpress.com/2011/02/04/sql-server-management-studio-ssms-basics/)

As far as mirroring status, this query is probably closest to what you'll need (found at http://blog.matticus.net/2010/08/tsql-to-report-db-mirroring-status-and.html):

SELECT a.name
, ISNULL(b.mirroring_role_desc, 'NOT MIRRORED') as mirroring_role_desc
, ISNULL(b.mirroring_state_desc, '') as mirroring_state_desc
, ISNULL(mirroring_safety_level_desc, '') as mirroring_safety_level_desc
FROM sys.databases a
INNER JOIN sys.database_mirroring b on b.database_id = a.database_id
WHERE a.name NOT IN ('master', 'msdb', 'model', 'tempdb', 'distribution')
ORDER BY a.name
