comment Raid 10 implemented on server. Need to know about its performance when one of the disk fails
+1. When a single disk fails, you still have your RAID0 array, but one of your RAID1 arrays is degraded, so your performance is unchanged until rebuild time.

comment How to get around Double NAT from the ISP?
@FlorinAsavoaie fair enough. I guess I just added them in case someone else sees this in the future and I wanted to make sure that they were aware of the implications.

comment How to get around Double NAT from the ISP?
@FlorinAsavoaie the advantage of PPTP over a bare network is that it is still a virtual network that you can route over as if it was directly connected, not over double-NAT. But... that's about it. But if you're talking about getting into the network from outside, then that's what you could achieve.

comment Windows Server 2012 using wrong IP address for replication
@ProfessorJV just make sure they replicate at least once before the tombstone lifetime is up. Normally it's 180 days. But yeah, it'll be so much easier to have a properly routed network.

comment Windows Server 2012 using wrong IP address for replication
@ProfessorJV That certainly would make sense, if they used to be a joined network. Well, it makes sense in terms of I can see how this happened, not that it makes sense in any other sense of the word.

comment How to get around Double NAT from the ISP?
@MichaelHampton sure, which is why I have added might. Because in double nat, who knows. Also I've had so many problems with IPSec over NAT I basically just don't do it any more.

comment Windows Server 2012 using wrong IP address for replication
One of the problems you're going to have @ProfessorJV is that you can't define your sites properly, because you have the same subnet in both locations and multi-homed DCs. Multi-homed DCs are normally a no-no. Whilst they can be made to work, it's usually not worthwhile. But multi-homed where each DC sees the same two subnets when they're actually different subnets? That's wayyyyy out there in terms of deployments.

comment Windows Server 2012 using wrong IP address for replication
Oh man, this is only going to be the start of your nightmares. A shared AD infrastructure means that you're going to have ton of A records in your DNS that are just going to be pointing to the wrong place. Update an A record on Site A and Site B will get the same record, but that IP is likely to be for a totally different service. Renumber one of those networks as soon as you practically can! You can't even set up Active Directory Sites and Services properly, because that uses subnets to infer the site.

comment LACP : Cisco ASA 5515 & Switch ProCurve 2920
I'm fairly sure that this is not a supported configuration from Cisco. Cisco documents typically have each ASA going into one switch only, and then stacking or uplinks on the switches. Then you configure the ASA to poll over a dedicated FO interface to detect device or interface failure, and then you have another poll set up to poll the devices over the switching interfaces. This will then allow the ASAs to fail over in the event of a switch OR ASA failure.

comment Can Logstash, ElasticSearch and Kibana be used to log http requests?
@AndréBorie sure. The stats about the kind of traffic you can find here (although I think it's a bit outdated now). Our ELK cluster is not the one from that page though (that's for searching the sites). We have six ElasticSearch boxes for logging, each with 2x E5-2660, 192GB of RAM and 43.65TB of usable storage. However that's also used for a bunch of other logstashing stuff, not just HTTP.
