NTDS Errors After Domain Prep & DC Promo

I have 2 Srv 2003std DC's and I installed our first Srv 2008std box. I did the domain and forest prep and it said it finished fine - at least it looked fine.

Then I ran dcpromo on the Srv 2008 box and that seemed to go fine until I noticed that one of the original Srv 2003 DC's was spitting up errors in the event log. Several NTDS errors - Active Directory failed to create an index for the following attribute.

Attribute identifier:
591789
Attribute name:
msFVE-RecoveryGuid

A schema cache update will occur 5 minutes after the logging of this event and will attempt to create an index for the attribute.

Additional Data
Error value:
-1403 JET_errIndexDuplicate, Index is already defined

NTDS entries all look fine on the newly created Srv 2008 DC. What can I check on the original DC's to see what went wrong with the forest and domain prep for 2008 ?

in this case i think it may actually be a completely different problem - had a re read and this one went back to the sync issues after the schema upgrade

tell me, do you get errors between the 2003 DC's? or is just the 2008
