DFS domain enumeration problem

Hello Everyone!  
      I would like to first say thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide.  My situation is as follows:

We have been running DFS in our production environment for almost 1 year now.  We are running server 2003 R2 and all DFS servers have the DFS Replication and DFS management tools installed.  We are in a multi domain forest and our domain is a child of the root.  We are unable to manage our DFS infrastruture.

When I open the DFS management console and try to add a namespace to the display I receive a message stating "the namespaces on "My Domain Here" cannot be enumerated.  The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted"  

I am able to enumerate the DFS namespaces for the other domains so the problem must be in my domain somewhere.  I have been researching online and have not been able to find too much information on this.  My namespaces are still working (I can browse to them, read and write data etc etc).  

I have checked our PDC emulator and found several DFS errors on it, however the errors started quite a while ago and I have been able to make changes to DFS since this error started, so I do not believe that is the problem.  I do not see any errors on the servers related to this problem.  

Can anyone suggest a fix for this or some troubleshooting methods?  Thanks for all of your help!

This problem has been corrected by rebooting my PDC Emulator.  After rebooting the PDC emulator I had to wait for about 30 minutes for Active Directory to replicate and then everything was working fine.
