We recently created a new site in Sites and Subnets.  This gives us a total of 2 sites - Default-Site-Name and "HomeOffice".   Prior to creating the new site, replication was happening and user/computer accounts adds and changes could be seen on the other 4 domain controllers.  Since the new site has been created, the changes on the other domain controllers are not being seen on the domain controller in the new site and similarly add/changes on the domain controller from the new site are not being seen on the other domain controllers that are in the default site.

I ran the dcdiag and repadmin.  All tests have passed.

Is there anything else I can check?

Hi,

how did you set up the site link in respect to replication time and schedule?

There is a single site link that contains both sites.  Cost is set to 100 and replication is set to every 180 minutes.    The schedule is set for Sunday through Saturday from 12:00 AM to 12:00 AM.

Maybe I should change reduce the 180 minutes to something shorter?  5 minutes?

15 minutes looks like the minimum.

I changed the time replication to 15 minutes and did some more testing. 

It looks like the user account I created on the DC in Default-Site shows up in the "HomeOffice" site.  However, the account I created on a DC in the "HomeOffice" site does not show up in default-site.

Would it make sense to have a second domain controller in the "HomeOffice" site.   As I map out the connections, it looks like there is a one way connection from one site to the other but not in the opposite direction.

Use 15 minutes, use no schedule unless the WAN really is not available. If you have any manually created connection objects, get rid of them.
