We have 2 Windows domains that trust each other in 2 separate buildings. We would like the data from one server to sync the data with the other server. Is there something built into windows server that will allow us to do this. Will that work between 2 domains that trust each other.

Thanks

Must members of a replication group reside in the same domain?

No. Replication groups can span across domains within a single forest but not across different forests.
