A great command built-in to Server 2008 Domain Controllers (DC’s). Try the following to force replication with other DC’s.

REM Repadmin options: /A = all naming contexts,
REM ... /d = distinguished names (vs GUID's)
REM ... /e = every site in enterprise, /P = push (vs default pull)
REM Pull updates from remote DC's
repadmin /syncall /A /e /d
REM Push updates to remote DC's
repadmin /syncall /A /e /d /P
repadmin /replsummary
repadmin /showrepl

Just a note from some recent AD work. Sometimes you don’t want to wait for replication to happen.
