dcdiag, repadmin, and the event logs are going to be the main tools for troubleshooting a lot of your AD problems.  

SO repadmin /showrepl   repadmin /replsummary for example to verify replication.  There are a lot of switches for repadmin and there is a whitepaper just on that tool alone.

repadmin /kcc is a good one for sites http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc742173(WS.10).aspx

If you're on server 2003 netdiag is another good one.

You can also force the replication by running below command and see if there is any errors.
repadmin /syncall /AdeP
You can also ran repadmin /replsum which will show the replication summary status.
You can also ran dcdiag /q  and netdiag /q to check for errors.
