I'm possibly about to embark on setting up domain trusts between two Active Directory sites. The two sites are already connected with a 100Mbps point to point VPN connection. Its just the windows side of it that I've never done.

I've never done this before but have read about it here and there. Anyone out there have a cheat sheet with good links to simple guides on this to be able to do it cleanly - want to know the key pro/cons and caveats without having to decipher 100s of Microsoft articles.

My opinion? You could instead setup an AD FS (federation services) between them. With AD FS you will provide a very flexible SSO system....

Let me know if AD FS could meet your scenario....
