A few questions...

1. How are you joining the machine to your domain, are you doing it through my computer properties, or are you running dcpromo?

2. How can you "see" users and computers being replicated to the machine?

Member servers do not get AD users and computers installed, you have to make it a  DC before you will see those applications.  

If you can see the AD snapins, then you've made the server a DC.

AD does not get replicated to member servers.  Replication of AD only happens if you make a member server a domain controller by running DCPROMO.  

You method of "seeing" replication occur is faulty...
