DFS Replication issue

I have 3 Windows 2003 SP2 servers in three different locations. I have DFS setup and verified the topology works and it does. The issue I am having is that when I view the staging folder I have over 2 gigs of data that is waiting to be replicated. Replication was working or seemed to be working great until this morning. Just as a test I created a new text document on one of my servers and (1kb in size) and it has not replacated and it has been over a hour now. I am guessing that it will not replicate until the documents in the Staging folder do. Is there any way to "help" this along or do I just have to wait for it to catch up? Please help! Thanks,

DFS replication should be instant. I read online a few months ago something about this issue & SP2 for 2003. Let me try to find it & I'll be right back.

You will probably have to wait but can you verify it is replicating properly and/or try to force a replication.
To force replication immediately
   1.In the console tree, under the Replication node, select the appropriate replication group.
   2.Click the Connections tab.
   3.Right-click the member you want to use to replicate, and then click Replicate Now.

Justworking: I tried to force a replication but I do not have that option. I went into the DFS Management console chose my group to replicate went in to the Connections tab and right clicked all I got was Disable, Properties, Delete, Help. Did I miss something?

Interesting. I am not near my office at the moment so I was going by memory. There is some command line tools as well....search for dfsrdiag.exe to see if it on the server. Double check with a dsfrdiag.exe /? but I think it is dfsrdiag.exe /sync or /syncnow.
dfsrdiag.exe will have other switches that can help diagnose as well.

It seems that this was a network issue. I am going to give you both points for this.
