I want to find out about joining 2 AD domains (both Win2k3 DC’s) and whether its a good idea or not. Each AD consists of 1 server and are connected via a site to site vpn. The remote site is halfway across the country. Managing 2 AD is a pain sometimes so I wanted to know how it would be possible to manage them from 1 AD forest. Right now what we do is connect to the remote server via remote desktop.
