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.
