Creation of new OU is seen in Group Policy Management Console but not Users and Computers

I am in the middle of a migration of SBS 2003 to Windows Server 2008. I thoroughly checked the health of the SBS 2003 server and was able to successfully replicate all users, comps, groups, DNS records, group policy, etc over to the new server. This morning I tried to create a new OU which shows up in the GP Management console but does not show up Active Directory Users and Computers on the  Windows Server 2008 computer (even though I am creating the OU on that machine). However it does replicate back over to the SBS 2003 AD users and Comps and GP management for that server. When I drag the comps into the new OU on the SBS 2003 server, the change is not reflected on the 2008 server. I am not seeing anything unusual in the event logs on the 2008 machine. Any help please? Thanks!

You did it in GPMC? Then you need to refresh ADUC view and you should see it also :)

Is this the same domain and your 2008 DC have Global Catalog set up ? Looks like no replication between DCs.

Ok, I just checked again in AD Users and Comps and it is there now. I don't know why it took so long.

That's no problem, you're welcome :)
I'm looking forward for next question :)

If you made the change on one DC and checked ADUC on a different DC, it didn't show up because the servers hadn't replicated the data yet. That usually happens every 5 minutes, but it can be longer depending on replication settings.

Did not change timing of replication. Do not know what occurred but seems to be ok now.
