JSI Tip 5556. How do I force a Windows NT 4.0 BDC in a Windows 2000 domain to synchronize?

In a Windows NT 4.0 domain, you could run net accounts /sync.

From a Windows 2000 platform, you can use nltest.exe from the Support Tools:

nltest /SYNC /server:\\<ServerName>

where \\<ServerName> is the NetBIOS name of the DC or BDC you wish to synchronize.
