AD Gateway web service information

I’ve been looking at AD Gateway service which was introduced for Windows Server 2003 / 2008.  The AD Web service was integrated for Windows Server 2008 R2.  This web service interface allows administrators to use powershell to manage Active Directory.  I’m trying to determine if this is a benefit when having multiple AD forests. If you are running Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, you can install the RSAT or Remote Administration tools feature in server manager.  Here is a couple unknowns I’ve not been able to prove yet is. 

  • Cross forest administration with powershell AD modules?

  • Can’t install w2k8 R2 powershell modules on w2k8 to connect to a w2k8 DC running AD Gateway service? My initial findings you need a w2k8 r2 member server or win 7 client in the domain.
