I would like to know if there any required domains or forest functional levels for the configuration of manager feature?  

Can this manager handle clients who are in another forest?

First you have to know about the SUP.

The Remote SUP can handle connections from up to 25,000 client computers. If there are more client computers you can configure the active SUP to use an NLB cluster which can handle connections up to 100,000 computers.

Step 1. install IIS 7.0 on your WSUS server

Start the Server Manager (click Start, click Run, and then type CompMgmtLauncher).
In the tree view, select Roles, then in the Roles pane click Add Roles.

In the Add Roles Wizard, click Select Server Roles, select the Web Service (IIS) check box, click Next, and then click Next again. You may see a message box Add features required for Web Server (IIS)? Click Add Required Features.

In the Select Role Services window, make sure that the following services are selected:

* Common HTTP Features (including Static Content)
* ASP.NET, ISAPI Extensions, and ISAPI Features (under Application Development)
* Windows Authentication (under Security)
* IIS Metabase Compatibility (under Management Tools, expand IIS 6 Management Compatibility)

Click Next, and then review your selections. Click Install, and finally click Close when done.
