Setting up AD & Exchange 2010 Federated Services

I have a list of steps to create a AD & Exchange Federated Services running on Server 2012 Enterprise:

Setup two AD-FS Servers (for company A and company B)
•      Setup AD FS federated trust between company A and company B
•      Choose a Server for Authentication Certificate for SSL Encryption (only 1)
•      Configuration of resource server(web server or other application server to which resources clients access) for company A and company B
      Create a federation trust with the Microsoft Federation Gateway
•      Create TXT records for federated delegation
•      Configure domains for federated delegation
•      Create an Autodiscover DNS
•      Create an organizational relationship
Is this the correct order in which to setup AD & Exchange 2010 Federated Services?

apologies as I did not delve further at least for a headstart on the direction. some good pointers include

The following Exchange organizations use the business instance of the Microsoft Federation Gateway by default:

Exchange 2010 Service Pack 2 (SP2) organizations using self-signed certificates for a federation trust
Exchange organizations hosted by Microsoft Online Services, such as the Exchange Online service offered in the Microsoft Business Productivity Online Standard Suite

The following Exchange organizations use the consumer instance of the Microsoft Federation Gateway by default:

Release to manufacturing (RTM) version of Exchange 2010 organizations using certificates issued by third-party certification authorities
Exchange organizations hosted by Microsoft Live@edu

We recommend that all Exchange organizations use the business instance of the Microsoft Federation Gateway for federation trusts. Before configuring federated delegation between the two organizations, you need to verify which Microsoft Federation Gateway instance each Exchange organization is using for any existing federation trusts.
