Dear Joe,

No one had write a complete one yet. 
But you can check on this link on the Picture. 


You should a small AD Dc server like that maybe 2 just to be safe. 

Than only the share will be serve by the samba ctdb cluster with cluster files system Or you files sharing server. 

However in over wan. 

I would suggest that the wan location with multi user have a samba Read only DC. 

Rsync is a good tools for sysvol. 
You can setup a 5 mins sync if you need high level synchronization. 

I don't have any knowledge about the trust. Can't help you there.
