1. Have you tried restarting the server?
2. Have you allowed a proper interval of time for information to replicate throughout the domain?
3. Take a look here http://www.itedge.net/blog/2005/11/12/directory-access-tab-in-exchange-doesnt-list-all-dcs/

Try reviewing http://www.eventid.net/display.asp?eventid=13508&eventno=349&source=ntfrs&phase=1
OR
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb727056.aspx

First. netdiag and dcdiag should show no failures before continuing to try to resolve this problem. You may need to open additional questions to solve any new problems that appear in netdiag or dcdiag.

By the way if by 6 nodes you meant 6 clients it shouldnt matter beucase it doesnt need to replicate to clients. If you meant 6 domain controllers, replication is almost immediate to any local DCs but if the other DCs are on distant networks or domains it make take longer depending on what you have set as your replication intervals and domain topology.

To make things simple, at this point it just sounds like its having trouble replicating but I didnt want to ignore your question about how long it should take for replication.

Is there a reason why this server is trying to use 192.168.1.2 as its DNS server? Shouldn't it be using 127.0.0.1 to point to itself??

So obviously sysvol isnt replicating properly. Could you try running netdiag /fix ?

There is also another question open along the same lines
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/File_Servers/Active_Directory/Q_23630051.html

One of the experts suggested editing the registry to reset "SysvolReady" flag under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Netlogon\Parameters. This is done by first setting it to 0 Restarting NetLogon and then back to 1 Restarting Netlogon again.
