Sharepoint between two sites
We have Sharepoint services 2005 at one location. We have another location that is connect via a T1 that wants to have Sharepoint as well. I am not sure if Sharepoint would work over such a slow connection plus the sharepoint server is in another domain although it is fully trusted. My question is w2hat is the best way to introduce the second site into Sharepoint so that both sites and users can use Sharepoint with each other.

First of all, there is no such thing as SharePoint services 2005. Is it Windows SharePoint Services 2.0, Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server 2003, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, SharePoint Foundation 2010, SharePoint Server 2010? When you say that you have a SharePoint whatever version running in one location (A) in a domain that is fully trusted with another domain in another location (B), then you can simply create a new site on the existing server and have the users in the other location (B) use this site. The only modification that will be required is to configure the People Picker in sharepoint to look for accounts of the other domain so you can find the user accounts in the other domain as well. See thread http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-NZ/sharepointadmin/thread/52070216-982b-4b92-b933-4e291f8b309d for how to do this. If bandwith is an issue, you will need to setup a separate server in the other location (B) and have the people picker configured for allowing access to the users in location A.Dirk Van den Berghe
