New User Accounts Created on Exchange 2010 SP2 Not Recognized

Hi Guys,
Ok, here is the situation:

Created new mailbox on Exchange server.  After mailbox has been created, I navigate to OWA to login as that user and receive the following error:

The item you tried to access no longer exists.
The item wasn't found. You or a delegate might have moved or deleted it using another computer or a mobile phone.  

I created another user to see if I could replicate the issue and it does the same for all new user accounts.

If I login to a Windows 7 Pro system and try to configure Outlook over RPC I get:

"The name cannot be matched to a name in the address list."

All existing accounts are not having issues, just new accounts that are created.

Interesting side note:  on the OWA error page where I receive the error:

"The item you tried to access no longer exists.  The item wasn't found. You or a delegate might have moved or deleted it using another computer or a mobile phone."

If I refresh the page, I can access the OWA mail account and send and receive.  This is just odd to me.

Hello,

How long are you waiting after mailbox creation? It sounds like it may just be an AD replication delay.

That was what I was thinking originally, but I created the first user account last night around (6:00pm EST).  It is now 10:35am EST and same problem exists.  So I created another user account to see if I could replicated and i get the same issue.

Check the health of your Active Directory. Make sure you don't have any replication issues.

OK, so I found out the issue.  One of the DC was being wacky and so I rebooted that server.  The exchange server was pointing to that DC and because of it OWA was issuing account errors on any new user accounts that were created.

Thank you jjmck!  I used:    repadmin /showrepl * /errorsonly        command to help troubleshoot the issue.
