Hi, can i create a domain DFS between 2 servers, one is a DC and the other is a member server in the domain.

I have event ID 13508 after creating a DFS between DC and member server

The File Replication Service is having trouble enabling replication from SERVERA to ServerB for d:\temp\sav-10 using the DNS name ServerB.domain.local. FRS will keep retrying.
 Following are some of the reasons you would see this warning.
 [1] FRS can not correctly resolve the DNS name ServerB.domain.local from this computer.
 [2] FRS is not running on  ServerB.domain.local
 [3] 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.
