Error in DFS Replication in R2

Last Modified: 2013-12-02
I'm attempting to replicate files between 2 windows 2003 R2 servers. To note, one is 32 and the other is 64 if that matters.

The files seem to be replicating, but when I try to monitor by running a report I get an error.

Cannot access the local WMI repository.

Then on the next page it says

Cannot access the local WMI repository.
  Affected replicated folders: All replicated folders on this server.
  Description: The DFS Replication reporting mechanism cannot find the WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) namespace to retrieve certain reporting information. Error ID: 0x8004100e.  
  Last occurred: Saturday, June 12, 2010 at 11:29:40 AM (GMT-6:00)
  Suggested action: For information about troubleshooting WMI errors, see WMI help.  

I've googled all over the place, cannot get a straight answer. Anyone have any ideas?
