I have two 2K3 domains in my forest with both DC’s same LAN.  I need to move a user from one domain to the other.  I deleted their user object from the first domain and cannot add to the second, even after 20 minutes.  I get the error “the user logon name you have chosen is already in use on your enterprise…” How long must I wait for the change to propagate?  Is there a way to force it?
