Hello Experts.  I hope you find this thought-provoking

My desired scenario- two servers, each a controller for its own domain.  Users will connect via Terminal Services to each.  A third server will run SQL Server.  

My first-choice outcome- The SQL Server would run two instances, each containing the databases for one of the domains.  A given domain would see only their instance, and thus, their own databases.  

My second-choice outcome- The SQL Server would be visible to each domain.  I could then configure their application software to point to the databases in their instance only.

you can configure either choice...

SQL supports local database security (created user names and passwords per database)  or integrated security ---using domain based ID's for secure access to the database.
