I am trying to recover from a frs problem with windows 2003 server. I had DFS/FRS running betweeen a 2003 server and a 2003 R2 server. All went well for several months. Then frs replication stopped. Everything seems to be ok except I get an error ID 13562. This error led me to testing that discovered the following in a report from the ntfrsutl ds command:

 MEMBER: SERVER
         DN   : cn=server,cn=domain system volume (sysvol share),cn=file replication service,cn=system,dc=starpointeproperties,dc=com
         Guid : 73148c4b-966c-4661-8d62fc09667706f0
         Server Ref     : (null)
         Computer Ref   : (null)
         WhenCreated  : 10/30/2005 12:30:43 US Mountain Standard Time US Mountain Standard Time [420]
         WhenChanged  : 12/11/2007 15:25:40 US Mountain Standard Time US Mountain Standard Time [420]
         WARN - SERVER lacks a settings reference

All other servers are represented and look OK. How do I get rid of this entry. I can find information about how to link back to a lost server but noe of the servers are lost. This entry does not exist in the domain.
I hope to recreate the DFS if I can get rid of this error. Does anyone know how to revove this entry?

Additional info I thought I included before:

   SET: DOMAIN SYSTEM VOLUME (SYSVOL SHARE)
      DN   : cn=domain system volume (sysvol share),cn=file replication service,
cn=system,dc=starpointeproperties,dc=com

Found answer in Question   ID   21627974

He had a similar problem and called Microsoft to find the answer. I have included the entry he made for the solution.

Event ID 13562

Type:  Adsiedit.msc

CN = System (expand)
CN=File Replication Service (expand)
CN= Domain System Volume (expand)
    Highlight the server (srvadm1)
      Properties
            Check the frsComputerReference and make sure it has a value set

If not, go to a domain controller that has a value set by following the same path above– click on properties of the good server – check the frsComputerReference – copy the path, go back to the server that has nothing set and paste the good path into the frsComputerReference.

Change the domain controller name to the server name that has no value set.  Stop and restart File Replication Service.

Another good way to check if the sysvol is working is to go to a command prompt and type      net share.  Look for the sysvol lineif that is sharing and is responding.

Is it normal for an Exchange server to be in here too?

It doesnt appear to be a domain controller

Its in the same place as the domain controllers.
 -- Default naming context
     --- DC=thedomain, DC=com
             ---CN=System
                 ---- CN=File Replication Service
                        ---- CN=Domain System Volume (sysvol share)
                              -- CN=EXCHANGE01

It would be if your exchange server(s) are replicating files.
