Symptom

Your Active Directory is not replication or takes a while to replicate.

Cause

This is by design when you have bridegehead servers and a distributed AD

Solution

To force Active Directory to replicate the information to its domain controllers, you have a few possibilities. Do not forget that this might cause some overhead and bandwidth problems during peak hours! 

You can use the Active Directory Sites And Services to force a replication. (check replication topology)

Active Directory Replication Monitor. You start Replmon and add the domain controllers to the list. Now you select syncronize each directory partition with all servers.

You can also execute Repadmin/syncall lubby.int where "lubby.int" is the domain to syncronize.
