[Samba] Samab DC's not syncing

I am running a Windows Domain based on 2 Samba AD servers.  The setup is
running mostly fine but I have the impression that the 2 DC's are not
syncing their information. For instance:
- I added a Windows pc to the domain last week, when I started 'Active
directory users and computers' today on a windows pc I could not see that
pc, after rebooting one of the DC's the pc suddenly appeared
- I configured a group policy (using RSAT on a Windows pc).  When I force a
group policy update on another windows pc after more than 1 hour, gpupdate
complains it can't access some files. Again rebooting one of the DC's fixed

I tried running:

  samba-tool ldapcmp ldap://dc1 ldap://dc2 -Uadministrator

But it doesn't show any issues (but I did that after the reboot).

Is there any way to force an update between 2 samba dc's?
