Computer is not showing in AD

Server 2008R2 AD. I did a fresh install of Windows 7 SP1, joined the domain, rebooted, but the computer is not showing under Computers OU. Computer logs-in to domain without a problem. Did wait long enough to confirm the same. Same happened on fresh install of XP SP3 with the same computer. Did a search in AD for computer name to no avail. Computer gets IP via DHCP running on the server and registers with DNS. This is a multiple DC/DNS/DHCP server LAN each on its own subnet and its own DNS/DHCP server.
Thanks.

- Make sure DCs are replicating.

- Try creating account manually in AD.

In Active Directory Users and Computers,
Under View menu check Advanced Features
Right-Click the domain and click Find...
** Change the drop-down from Users, Contacts, and Groups to Computers
Now type in the computer name and click Find Now
Double click the found computer.
Click the Object tab to see what OU it is in.

Thanks rajivkumar07. That was it - AD wasn't syncing with DC where account was sitting. How do I force AD synchronization with that DC? Thanks.
