new user not showing up in AD (SBS2008)

I created a new user in SBS2008 via the SBS management console.  I know for a fact that the account got created because I see the user's mailbox in Exchange Management Console.  I left the server only to be baffled that when I came back the user's account was nowhere to be found.  So I created the same user again thinking that the first time was non-successful.  Same thing happened.

1.  I need help in solving this to see the reason to this problem.
2.  How do I get both accounts to show?
2.  How can I delete and be sure that both accounts is cleanly deleted off the AD so I can recreate them.

Thanks,

Wayne

Have you tried creating a user with a different username just to be sure it's not just an issue with that particular user?  Also, how many users do you currently have created in AD?

Try querying the user.

dsquery user -name <...>

Hi Ryan,

I created a test user and it's showing up.  However, I am sure that SBS tried to create the account for the previous user because I see the Exchange Account and user's folder account created.

I have 65 users in the AD.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

I agree with the other comment, what do you get when you do a dsquery for that username?

motnahp00, I can't find any instance of the user when using DS Query.

However, after restarting the server and manually deleting the shared folder/exchange account and recreating it seemed to work.

Thanks for all the help!

There isn't much info on the cause or how to solve this issue.  Seemed like the basic server restart may have solved the problem.
