Here is my setup:

Datacenter (remote location):
Exchange 2003 Server/Domain Controller (configured) (DomainA)
Web Server (configured)
SQL Server (configured)


Corporate Office (local):
Domain Controller (not yet configured)
2nd Domain Controller (not yet configured)
File Server
File Server


We have a dedicated 3Mbit connection from the corporate office to the datacenter.

I would like to get all of my users on a domain.  Should I just use the domain (DomainA) that is currently in the datacenter and add DCs to my corporate location and allow them to communicate through the 3Mbit connection?  Or should I look into a trusted domain scenario?  What would be the pros/cons of either setup?

i think you can use one domain model with your broadband connecting the two sites. it seems that you know well about how to setup the systems. so what i recommend is only that you better establish a VPN connection over your broadband link, then you can treat the two subnets for local and remote sites as two local ones.

hope it helps,
bbao
