MS System Center Operations Manager 2012

I have two co-lo sites, say one in LA & one in NY.
I am going to put  1 management server in LA, and 1 management server in NY.     I want to create a management pool for HA.

When I install the management servers it asks for a management group.  
What is best practice.

Should I install a management group in each co-lo site.   Or install one management group, which contains both co-lo sites.

If I do 2 separate management groups won't it ask for a dB for each co-lo

I have two database servers in each co-lo, one for ops mgr & one for data warehouse, which totals 4 dB servers.

Any suggestions?
Thanks

Microsoft is suggesting that install all management servers in one Data center as resource pool and install gateway servers at Remote sites for SCOM 2012 \ 2012 SP1
But obvious, seperate database serevrs for each management server is not required
Please check below articles for more information.

So how is this High-available, if I'm putting all my management servers in one data center, and use GTW server at the remote site.

If site A goes down completely where is he HA at site B, if there is no SQL dB's ad management servers.

Above posts are talking about only HA within site
If your main site goes down completely then you need to look for DR site scenario
Please have a look at below articles.

Another question, if I install a management server, and do not include installing the web console & operations console.

1.  Can it be installed after wards running the setup again?
2.  If I install web/operations console on the management server, can they be installed at a
     remote site, on a windows 7 box also?   meaning can the consoles be installed several times  at different locations.

Yes
You can install operations manager console seperately on win7 win8, win server 2008 R2 and 2012 servers as required
You can install Operation manager web console seperately on windows 2008 r2 or 2012 server
as required
During scom server installation, always install managemnt console as well to test post installation checks and tasks.
Later on you can deploy web consoles as required for delegated admins.
