Receiving error message in Event Viewer File Replication Service, Event ID: 13508, Source: NtFrs. And there is no Event ID: 13509 to follow.  Windows 2003, Any ideas???

The File Replication Service is having trouble enabling replication from Server02 to Server01 for d:\sysvol\domain using the DNS name FRS will keep retrying.  Following are some of the reasons you would see this warning.
 [1] FRS cannot correctly resolve the DNS name from this
 [2] FRS is not running on
 [3] The topology information in the Active Directory for this replica has not yet
       replicated to all the Domain Controllers.

This event log message will appear once per connection, After the problem is fixed you will see another event log message indicating that the connection has been established.
