The File Replication Service is having trouble enabling replication from ATHENA to CYCLOPS for c:\windows\sysvol\domain using the DNS name athena.alrifai.com. FRS will keep retrying.
 Following are some of the reasons you would see this warning.
 [1] FRS can not correctly resolve the DNS name athena.alrifai.com from this computer.
 [2] FRS is not running on athena.alrifai.com.
 [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.

Things to check:
File replication servicw is started on bith machines
Both Machine have correct DNS Settings
Firewall is not blocking FRS

As detailed here,

FRS event ID 13508 is a warning that the FRS service has been unable to complete the RPC connection to a specific replication partner. It indicates that FRS is having trouble enabling replication with that partner and will keep trying to establish the connection.

A single FRS event ID 13508 does not mean anything is broken or not working, as long as it is followed by FRS event ID 13509, which indicates that the problem was resolved. Based on the time between FRS event IDs 13508 and 13509, you can determine if a real problem needs to be addressed.

Note: If FRS is stopped after an event ID 13508 is logged and then later started at a time when the communication issue has been resolved, event ID 13509 will not appear in the event log. In this case, look for an event indicating that FRS has started, and ensure it is not followed by another event 13508.

If you are ALSO getting a 13568 on the DC that has the sysvol that is attempting to replicate to the other DC with the 13508 error, than following this procedure (per Microsoft).  It fixed my 13508 instantly:

The File Replication Service has detected that the replica set "DOMAIN SYSTEM VOLUME (SYSVOL SHARE)" is in JRNL_WRAP_ERROR.
 Replica set name is    : "DOMAIN SYSTEM VOLUME (SYSVOL SHARE)"
 Replica root path is   : "c:\winnt\sysvol\domain"
 Replica root volume is : "\\.\C:"
 A Replica set hits JRNL_WRAP_ERROR when the record that it is trying to read from the NTFS USN journal is not found.  This can occur because of one of the following reasons.
 [1] Volume "\\.\C:" has been formatted.
 [2] The NTFS USN journal on volume "\\.\C:" has been deleted.
 [3] The NTFS USN journal on volume "\\.\C:" has been truncated. Chkdsk can truncate the journal if it finds corrupt entries at the end of the journal.
 [4] File Replication Service was not running on this computer for a long time.
 [5] File Replication Service could not keep up with the rate of Disk IO activity on "\\.\C:".
 Setting the "Enable Journal Wrap Automatic Restore" registry parameter to 1 will cause the following recovery steps to be taken to automatically recover from this error state.
 [1] At the first poll, which will occur in 5 minutes, this computer will be deleted from the replica set. If you do not want to wait 5 minutes, then run "net stop ntfrs" followed by "net start ntfrs" to restart the File Replication Service.
 [2] At the poll following the deletion this computer will be re-added to the replica set. The re-addition will trigger a full tree sync for the replica set.
WARNING: During the recovery process data in the replica tree may be unavailable. You should reset the registry parameter described above to 0 to prevent automatic recovery from making the data unexpectedly unavailable if this error condition occurs again.
To change this registry parameter, run regedit.
Click on Start, Run and type regedit.
Click down the key path:
Double click on the value name
   "Enable Journal Wrap Automatic Restore"
and update the value.
If the value name is not present you may add it with the New->DWORD Value function under the Edit Menu item. Type the value name exactly as shown above.
