Windows domains VP and servers

I have two seperate domains one in London and one in Aberdeen both have a mail and file server both each have their own exchange server.  They are connected through a stable VPN firewall VPN. There is a two way trust and i can assign each others active directory setting/permissions to folders etc.

London has down sized and there is a need to integrate both exchnage server and both domains.

Can i take way the London exchange server and reconfigure the London file server to be part of the Aberdeen domain. Basically make a new DC for the Aberdeen domain and stick it london. Will the active directory from Aberdeen replicate down to London trhough the VPN. The London users would then be a part of te aberdeen domain and i can point them to the Aberdeen Exchange server (after moving there mail boxes and setting up new users for them on active directory)

Is threre a problem or draw backs with what i have suggested. Can it be done in a better cost effective way.

Thanks in advance

Mark

You can set up the site in London. You will want to create a "SITE" in London and configure the Site in "Active Directory Sites and Services". I will post the KB's for you.
