in sights and services, you have to scroll to your NTDS settings and right click on your site links, there you can select replicate now

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

pyrmont?
You can also use Repadmin Tool to force the replication. This is part of Windows 2003 Resource kit and you need to install W2k3 Rkit to get this tool

Check the link below for Repadmin and its syntax to force the replication

You should install Support tools from your OS CD and use Replication Monitor (type replmon in your command prompt). This tool will show any replication error by AD partition and you can even initiate push replication, or replicate across sites for all or single AD partition. This tool can also be used for different diagnostics tests regarding replication issues.
