Windows 2003 Domain Clients Change Password Not Updating on all servers

Hello All,

     I have a client with a strange issue.  They have a Windows 2003 Domain with 2 Exchange 2003 Servers.  They have it set for users to have to change their domain password after 30 days.  Well when the users change their password they can log on to the domain.  Then they launch Outlook and the get a pop up asking for a password.  The new password won't work and must enter the old one.  After some time it will pop up again and they need to enter the new one.  What can I do to get the DC's to update with Exchange faster?

Sounds like an AD replication issue.

Use the replmon (repadmin in 2008) to verify all the domain controllers are replicating as expected.

Another quickie when domain controllers aren't playing nice is to make sure they use each other for DNS, instead of looking towards themselves.

Thanks for reply I'll give that a try.  

Do I i just run the replmon from any of the DCs?

I went ahead and replmon and don't see any replication errors on the domain controllers?  Anything else causing this issue.  Now it appears it may be happening more with one of the two Exchange servers.
