Computer Objects Missing in AD

I recently had to seize roles on a DC running 2008 from a DC running 2003 that had crashed.

I can see the user objects but there are no computer objects in AD on just this one DC.

I have checked my other DC's running both 2003 and 2008 and they show both object types.

I ran DCdiags and found this :

----
Starting test: NCSecDesc

Error NT AUTHORITY\ENTERPRISE DOMAIN CONTROLLERS doesn't have

Replicating Directory Changes In Filtered Set
access rights for the naming context:

DC=ForestDnsZones,DC=fbc,DC=internal
Error NT AUTHORITY\ENTERPRISE DOMAIN CONTROLLERS doesn't have

......................... DC8 failed test NCSecDesc

The DCDiag might be a false positive if this is a W2008 Replicating Only DC; see:

Did you run adprep before you added the 2008 server?

turned out to be the filter option/show all objects in AD view menu on server 2008
