We have a ser ver 2008 machine each at 2 different locations but unfortunately they were set up as sepperate domians.

I need a way to utiolize my site to site VPN and consolidate both domains to be just one domain in redundancy.

Whats the best eway to do this, or can i create a trust that would allow both sites to join whichever domain i choose?

In order to consolidate the domains (not a bad idea) you would have to migrate one of the domains into the other.  Microsoft makes a migration tool.  There are also third party migration tools but ADMT should be fine for a smaller environment like yours.

Creating a trust is part of the process.

Thanks

I would look at setting up a trust first between the domains unless the business is completely comfortable merging the two domains. If you still want to merge them I would setup one domain as a primary domain then create a pivot domain under it in which you can place the second domain into.
