The scope of this white paper is restricted to concepts about authentication, authorization, and trust management across multiple forests. Although the basic reasons why you may want to deploy multiple forests are explained, this white paper is not intended to be a multiple forest deployment decision guide. Also, this white paper does not discuss how to synchronize Microsoft Outlook address book contacts or Microsoft Exchange Server public folders. This paper does, however, provide information about other technologies, such as Microsoft Metadirectory Services (MMS) and Exchange Server public folder replication tools.
