We have our office domain (about 5 servers w exchange/SQL 2
DCs/50 users)and an offsite domain named domain.local(2 servers 1 DC  15
users).  We would like to setup a trust or do whatever is needed so the 2
domains can seemlessly share same resources.  What would the best method
be.  renaming the smaller domain to our  create forest?  we
tried trusts relationship but they share the same namespace and that doesnt
appear to be possible.
We know the setup wasnt ideal, but it was rushed thru by others- so I am
trying to clean the thing up whilst were slow.
