Hi,
I plan to install SCCM in our enviroment to replace WSUS.
At that moment WSUS server 3 active directory forest trusted each other bidirectionally.
I would like know if is possible accomplish the same goal with one SCCM installation or if is necessary install an SCCM for each forest.
Thank you

Hello,

SCCM uses WSUS for deploying updates.
In your case with two-way trust everything should work. You need to make sure that all DNS queries from/to SCCM can be resolved.

Here's the guide on multi-forest SCCM deployments: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb694003.aspx

Thanks for answer Philip!
So relying on a correct DNS configuration I should be able to deploy the update in the 3 forest; in your experience  I have to create special user account in the 3 forest to do the software distribution works?

Yes, I highly recommend creating a separate account in each forest.
