Can't see users in AD

I am running Server 2003 as a Domain Controller and also the Exchange 2003 server.  I have added new users to the domain but they are not showing up in the Users list.  Not all of them are setup with Exchange, but they still should be listed as users.  What could could be going on?

Is there a way to see a list of logged in users?

Thanks.

beyondt,

This will show you the current connection to the server.  Is that what you are looking for?

Is this the only Domain controller?  If not, you might have some replication issues.  Do the users show up on the other DC's?

What tool are you using to see the users... Active Directory Users & Computers?  They might be in the wrong/different OU.  Try using the Find function by right clicking the root of the domain and selecting find.

As beyondt mentioned, Net session will show the list of users currently connected to the machine you run it on.  It will not list all the users currently logged onto the domain since it is only based on server sessions.  MS has no good way of determining who is logged onto the domain.  Running net session on all machines will give you an idea, but not very efficient.

Is this SBS?  If so the users go into a different OU.

Okay, my bad...The users I was looking for are, in fact in separate OUs.  I was not paying attention to that.  Thanks for all of the input on this.
