Planning on making what is currently two websites on diff. machines, AB, as a single experience.

So siteB will be DNS as subdomain like http://siteB.siteA.com, but still live as seperate site.

How to handle internal search?

Site A uses Google search.

Site B uses Apache Solr Search module.

My 1st choice is to use Solr on both sites with single experience so a Visitor can conduct a searcn at http://www.siteA.com or http://siteB.siteA.com and returns results from both.

Possible?

If you want to use Solr then you can use the Multisite Search module:

https://drupal.org/project/apachesolr_multisitesearch

It's quite easy to install and use, and it will take content from each site and display it in one search experience.

I hope this works for you!

Cheers,

Mike
