SharePoint Web Servers not propagating newly created websites / web apps

I recently had a scenario where web apps I’d created in my new SharePoint farm were not propagating to other servers in the farm.

To give you a little background the WFE and APP servers we’re in separate network segments running Windows 2008 R2 and therefore there was firewall restrictions between the segments.

After trying the usual IISRESET and restarting the services I realised that ports 56737 and 56738 were not open inbound on the servers to created a GPO for the firewall rules. After this still nothing so on the servers where the web apps had not created I restarted the WSS Web Application service from the servers in farm page on SharePoint Central Administration and the web apps appeared – problem solved!
