My question is does my site systems have to be in the same domain in the same forest? If no, what are the exceptions for this? And also, I want to install clients from other forest but I don’t want to download the client installation source files from the site server, is that possible? Thanks.
Configuration Manager Site System Server
Yes it is true for ADDS (Active Directory Domain Services) that your site systems have to be in the same domain in the same forest in Windows server 2003 or server 2008.
You can install clients from other forest by using configuration manager in multiple Active Directory Forest. For this you can use Configuration Manager 2007. With this you can download support for client installation source file.
For more information for your project you have to know about System Center Configuration Manager SCCM or CM07. For more advance information about this you can visit this link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/System_Center_Configuration_Manager. This will help you in your project.
