Are you sure that it isn't propogating ?
Have you checked the attribute 'pwdLastSet' in the users object in AD
on all DCs ?


ldbsearch -H /usr/local/samba/private/sam.ldb -b
"DC=samdom,DC=example,DC=com" -s sub
"(&(objectClass=user)(sAMAccountName=username))" pwdLastSet | grep
'[p]wdLastSet' | awk '{print $NF}'

Run the above command on all DCs, it should produce a number and the
number should be the same on all DCs

Replace:
/usr/local/samba/private/sam.ldb with the path to your sam.ldb
DC=samdom,DC=example,DC=com with your NC
username with a users name from your AD domain

You will also need ldb-tools installed.

This is worrying, they should replicate to all DCs.

Definitely not normal, how are you creating users ?

Have a look at 'samba-tool ldapcmp --help' to check the AD databases.
