I have an SBS 2K server and a peer domain controller on my network. We imaged the SBS computer to a new computer successfully. However, when it was brought on to the network it did not sync up properly with the peer domain controller. As a result, replication has been halted between the two domain controllers. When the first domain controller is restarted, the netlogon service pauses. The exchange information store and MTA stacks services do not start and have to be started manually. Attempts to force replication manually failed. I would like to remove the peer domain controller and clean up the Active Dir Db on the first domain controller. Attempts to run Dcpromo on the peer failed. Any ideas?

The File Replication Service is having trouble enabling replication from CNC-SERVER to SERVER1 for c:\winnt\sysvol\domain using the DNS name Cnc-Server.Ism.local. FRS will keep retrying.
Following are some of the reasons you would see this warning.
 FRS can not correctly resolve the DNS name Cnc-Server.Ism.local from this computer.
 FRS is not running on Cnc-Server.Ism.local.
 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.
