How long does it take for the schema to replicate?

I just ran ForestPrep and DomainPrep to begin my Exchange 5.5 -> 2003 migration.  On the DC where I ran ForestPrep, the schema is updated and the new attributes are in AD, but in all other DCs, the schema has not updated.  Did I do something wrong is does it just take a while?

It's been 2 hours since the schema was updated.

Did you run on the appropriate DCs (Masters)?

ADPrep /forestprep on the schema master in your Windows 2000 forest.
ADPrep /domainprep on the Infrastructure Master in each AD domain.

There's an article on this at:

Honestly, I don't know exactly how long it will take to move to every DC, but 2 hours sounds long.  ...unless you have a boatload of DCs?

also note, you should've had forestprep complete replication before running domainprep.
...and I'm sure you have SP2, right?

It appears that the problem is that you must install the Microsoft Exchange Management Tools on any computer you wish to manage the exchange features on.  This is per Microsoft.
