I am getting an FRS error because my company used to have a domain controller which was demoted.  my new domain controller show the proper replication partners and replicates properly with the new partners.  but the DC still has FRS errors in event viewer point to being unable to establish FRS connection with the old DC.  It also shows when I do a dcdiag /e  but everything else is fine.

Sounds like you have some history about your OLD DC.

Check in Active Directory Sites and services to see if there has been a manual entry created for your old DC as a replication partner.
Look under the current DC name and then NTDS Settings make sure it doesn't appear under there.

Also make sure it doesn't appear in Sites & Services as an entry as a server.
