I've heard Exchange tends to bind itself to 1 particular global catalog server. If you're making this change on the other domain controller it can take some time for the changes to replicate to the other server. You can force a replication after a change is made from inside the AD Sites and Services app.

Well, pay attention to what server you're making the change on. When you open AD Users and Computers (ADUC) at top of the left tree view you see something like:

Active Directory Users and Computer [some.server.name.yourcorp.com]

That "some.server.name.yourcorp.com" is the server that is being edited. Make a mental note of this. Now open AD Sites and Services (ADSS) and navigate down the tree:

ADSS -> Sites -> Default-First-Site-Name -> Servers -> (your OTHER dc) -> NTDS Settings

on the right you should see something about the other server (some.server.name.yourcorp.com), right click on that and hit "replicate now"
