Here is the error message I am getting on my 2nd Domain Controller:
The File Replication Service is having trouble enabling replication from DC1 to DC2 for c:\windows\sysvol\domain using the DNS name DC1.Domain.com. FRS will keep retrying.
Following are some of the reasons you would see this warning.
 FRS can not correctly resolve the DNS name DC1.Domain.com from this computer.
 FRS is not running on DC1.Domain.com.
 The topology information in the Active Directory for this replica has not yet replicated to all the Domain Controllers.
This event log message will appear once per connection, After the problem is fixed you will see another event log message indicating that the connection has been established.

I have edited the host file on both DC's to verify that it is not a DNS problem...
I recently took a DC offline DC0. Before I took DC0 offline I moved all FSMO rules to DC1. And made DC1 the global catalog Server. About 3 days later I wanted to bring up DC2. However it tells me that replication is failing.
I have tried several things to fix problem but cant seem to get this one...
one idea I have is that the FSMO rules did not transfer correctly from DC0 to DC1 and now that problem is causing this problem Any ideas? Thanks
