What is your configured replication level?
(<name>dfs.replication</name> in hdfs-site.xml or hdfs-default.xml)
One can specify replication when creating a file, but if you used put it
should've taken the one from the configuration.
If it is higher then 1 it should happen automatically.
If it doesn't look for errors in the logs.
