    Not sure if you tried looking at Event ID website, but here is some information on your problem:

    As per Microsoft: "The object's attributes do not match the expected attributes". See MSW2KDB for additional information about this event.

    This can be fixed by using ADSIEDIT. Under the Server Container for your server you will find the records for the old FRS replication that is conflicting. Delete the references for all members. This solution has been tested and resolves this issue.
