Problem adding global catalog server

1.      Ran DCPROMO on y_server to make additional global catalog on domain.  
2.      Viewing replmon it shows the last update of y_server to be at several minutes ago, like it worked&
5.      In replmon, I show Global Catalog Servers in Enterprise and it lists all.  When I show GCats from x_server it doesnt list y_server as a gc.
3.      Directory Service event viewer shows error.  Event ID 1586.  The naming context is in the process of being removed or is not replicated from the specified server.
4.      Netdiag from y_server shows: all tests passed.
5.      Dcdiag from y_server shows:  Starting test: frssysvol
There are errors after the SYSVOL has been shared.
The SYSVOL can prevent the AD from starting.
......................... Y_SERVER passed test frssysvol
6.      Event Viewer on y_server also shows event id 13508, and The File Replication Service is having trouble enabling replication from X_SERVER to Y_SERVER for c:\winnt\sysvol\domain using the DNS name x_server.aaaa.aaaa.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 mx_server.aaaa.aaaa.com from this computer.
 [2] FRS is not running on x_server.aaaa.aaaa.com.
 [3] The topology information in the Active Directory for this replica has not yet replicated to all the Domain Controllers.

Not what I was looking for.  But the problem has been resolved.  I took the original DC down completely (not by choice, it failed after a power outage).  Seized FSMO roles with another server.  Thanks.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why
