Active Directory Disabled Account

By eboha ·
I have a 2 domain controller LAN, both DCs running Win2k Server, in Mixed Mode, with integrated Active Directory. If I disable a user account from the backup DC Active Directory user manager, the user manager shows the account Xed out and the user is denied access to the network, almost immediately. However, this change never replicates to the primary DC Active Directory user manager. This problem applies to more than one user account. Have tried to manually syncronize both DCs to no avail. Active Directory Replication Monitor shows no errors and replication of other data seems normal between the 2 DCs. Ideas? I have limited Admin experience so please provide step by step answers. Thanks.

Try and check for errors in the file replication service in event viewer.

Make sure you don't have a disjionted namespace.
A disjointed namespace is when the FQDN of the local computer (in system properties > identification doesn't match the one in Active Directory.

There are no mismatches of computer names between system properties and Active Directory. Thanks for the suggestion.
