comment What carries out SQL Server Mirroring?
As far as I know, SQL Mirroring itself is done within the SQL engine itself, because it's a part of the ACID compliance (consistent). It's not like Transaction Log Shipping which is really just a collection of SQL Agent jobs.

comment Dell Precision T7600 OMSA Perc H710
@BrandonMartin RAID6 with 4 disks gives you the same usable space as RAID10, but with degraded performance. RAID10 is a much more sensible solution if you have 4 disks. The advantage is that you can expand the array by one disk at a time I guess, which you can't usually do with RAID10 (you have to expand it 2 disks at a time).

comment How to run a virtualhost 443 without an SSL cert?
I know this is an old question, but now that it's 2015 there is a service called Let's Encrypt that makes the process of installing a valid, publically trusted SSL certificate for small installations like this incredibly easy, and best of all, free.

comment HAProxy and Radius
Regarding the hostname part, someone else just asked the same thing: serverfault.com/q/740560/7709 - can't be done for most protocols. Yes haproxy can do TCP load balancing, but you're not using it for that, you're mostly just going to be using it for its ACLs. And you can't do http auth on anything except http itself, so you could just us a normal reverse proxy for the HTTP protocols. Something like nginx.

comment Looking at creating 400 GPO settings to STIG a server
Can you clarify what you mean by "to STIG a Windows Server image"? What is STIG? Well, I know that some say that he knows two facts about ducks and both of them are wrong, but in this context?

comment How to route requests through router based on domain names?
The correct way to achieve what you want is to assign different public IP addresses, because even though you have a router in your diagram, it's actually NATting, which isn't routing at all. So you need more IP addresses, and you can either route fully and put the public IPs on your three servers, OR, you can put the IP addresses on your router and do a 1:1 NAT (eww)

comment How to route requests through router based on domain names?
What you're asking for is pretty much impossible, because the vast, vast majority of L7 protocols have no concept of a hostname, and thus can't be proxied based on a hostname

comment HAProxy and Radius
haproxy is unlikely to be suitable for what you want. haproxy is a load balancer. The only way you can reliably stop people from accessing ports on a different network is with a firewall, and it sounds like that's what you need here.

Are you talking about using authentication in a HAProxy ACL, or to log onto the HAProxy box itself? Not entirely sure how haproxy fits into your network here.

Does your switch show any LACP status messages? e.g. How many PDU's it's sent/received? That can sometimes be a giveaway about the issue.
