2003 R2 server will not update replication partners

Last Modified: 2012-05-05
I've been trying to DCpromo a 2003 R2 server, but I keep getting a DNS error.  It looks like it upgrades all of the SRV and CNAME guid records, but no matter what I do, I keep getting the following error in DNS on the new DC.  I've even renamed the server and given it a fresh IP - still no luck.  Help!  I need to get this server replicating soon. How can I get this resolved?  See error below:

The DNS server has encountered a critical error from the Active Directory. Check that the Active Directory is functioning properly. The extended error debug information (which may be empty) is "000020B5: AtrErr: DSID-03152392, #1:
      0: 000020B5: DSID-03152392, problem 1005 (CONSTRAINT_ATT_TYPE), data 0, Att 9067d (msDS-NC-Replica-Locations)". The event data contains the error.
